Knock yourself out trying, but don't expect a lot. OS X is BSD
Unix, yes. It's also the Coca and Carbon libraries, including
whatever the official name is for Display PDF (the successor to
DisplayPostScript). You get a *lot* of proprietary APIs on OS X
that let you do all the really neat things that define OS X.
Almost all userland Posix code will run just fine on OS X. No
software written specifically for the non-Posix layers of OS X
will run on anything else.
