I am certain there are outliers that don't compile cleanly on OSX, but that hardly proves that OSX is not a good UNIX target. The vast majority of software compiles and runs just fine on the latest OSX release.

Can't say that I find compiling other's applications on MacOS X any
harder than on FreeBSD (without /usr/ports/ assistance). Only
disappointment has been trying to run FreeBSD-hosted X11 apps using
Apple's X11 server. Apple has updated a couple of times since I last
tried so this isn't an entirely fair comparison.
Well, I still don't like the fact that the X11 packaged by Apple is XFree 4.8.xx.. Serious improvements and some security issues have been addressed since the majority of the XFree86 group moved to X.org.. Yay for ports / fink though (depending on what you use), cause you can easily upgrade to X.org 6.9 under fink with after a few steps.
