AFAIK, there's been no work to port it to OS-X. Virt-manager is written in
python, and libvirt clients build for OS-X, so in theory it is possible, but
in practice I've no idea what dragons might lurk there. I imagine it would
be easier than a Win32 port, but that's not saying much...

I've copied the virt-manager mailing list since that's a better place for
this kind of question

FWIW, I haven't done any work on virt-manager for a good 5 years now, Cole
Robinson leads the development, so while I'm happy to receive compliments
for creating it, Cole and other recent community contributors deserve most
of the credit
