It is also possible to set it up with an inetd. 

To do this, install xinetd (using brew for example). 
Copy the osx agent from $OMD_ROOT/share/check_mk/agents and install it in 
/usr/bin. Copy the sample xinetd config from 
$OMD_ROOT/share/check_mk/agents/cfg_examples and install it in /etc/xinetd.d.
