While I'm not exactly Darwin folk, I use git on Mac OS X 10.2.8 (I'm 
sitting behind a scary firewall, so don't even think about hacking me).

I have three fixes in my personal tree without which git refuses to 

- daemon.c needs a define or typedef for socklen_t.

- mailinfo.c needs to have a simple strcasestr implementation, because 
  10.2.8 (at least in my setup) is lacking it!

- gitk gets very confused about the window layout. My preliminary tests on 
  cygwin showed that this seems to be rather a problem of Tk with rootless 
  Xwin. I worked around it by explicitely stating the dimensions of some 
  canvas windows which would not automatically resize with their contents 

The only thing I did not "fix" is git-cvsimport not running because of a 
lacking File/ But then, I run git-cvsimport on a different machine 

I regularly use git on OS X and it works great!
