Support for Mac OS is already removed at 2011.

commit 3962b65858ae5d5226fa504d2d1b4f63e7686a95
     Remove unmaintained driver wrappers
     The driver wrappers broadcom, iphone, osx, and ralink have not been
     maintained for a while and it does not look like they will be in the
     future either. As such, remove them from the development branch. The
     previous versions will be included in older releases up to 1.x.
