I'm not a Mac user, but as far as I can see the main requirement is to
compile Gtk for Mac (seen reports a while back it should be possible,
consult the internet) and then compile pygtk bindings. Having that you
should be able to run zim without X.

If you succeed compiling those libraries and running zim natively,
packaging those libraries would be step 2. This is probably the easy

Any Mac users who have experience with compiling / packaging here to comment?
