  Well there is porting, which means just being able to compile it
without any hypervisor support allowing to do remote access (like for
the current Windows port) and that should not be too hard on MacOS-X
due to its UNIX lineage.
  Now support for local virtualization (QEmu for example) would be a more
complex issue but probably not much  more complex than existing linux
hypervisor support.

  In any case, portability patches are welcome !
