You could try 'Alphatk' (http://www.santafe.edu/~vince/Alphatk.html), which 
is a reimplementation of Alpha on top of Tcl/Tk.  I'm told it kind-of works 
with the latest 'aqua-tk' release (it works fine on top of X-windows on 
Unix which you could run on top of OS X, or on a Windoze box).

It shares all of the LaTeX mode functionality with Alpha.

caveat: I wrote it and use it daily, but mostly on Windoze.

Alternatively as Jon points out, wait for Alpha X, which will come...
