UEFI support for MacBook Pro has varied a lot upon generations, so that
someone succeeded or failed doesn't imply that you will get the same
I have gathered a few links a while ago, some could still be useful.
All I know is that these links are not broken at time of writing:
These links are off topic as they are not about Syslinux. Some of them
could give some clues though.
Other than that, The level of compliance of OS X to the UEFI spec has
varied upon time as stated by Wikipedia:
"Apple uses EFI for its line of Intel-based Macs. Mac OS X v10.4 Tiger
and Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard implement EFI v1.10 in 32-bit mode even on
newer 64-bit CPUs, but full support arrived with Mac OS X v10.8 Mountain
Digging a bit you should find on Apple's website the level of
compliance of the firmware of your MacPro version.
