I always have the developer tools installed so it may or may not be needed but you just have to download the android sdk, extract, and double click on android inside the tools folder, and then install the sdk tools. Then the unrooting instructions are followed pretty much the same.
If needed I can probably write it up.
I would be really unhappy if I ended up with a phone that I couldn't mess around with under OS X.

Gingerbreak guide on linux. Should be similar for the Mac. All of the steps for rooting are from the ADB (Android SDK).
The part that will be different for Mac/Linux is the initial setup before you start rooting.
- You have to get the Android SDK setup (Windows .exe is included in the zip)
- You have to get the SDK installed and working from the command line
- You have to make sure the ADB finds your phone when it's connected
After those 3 steps are completed on any OS, just follow the guide with the ADB shell commands
