/That/ would be killing a gnat with a sledgehammer :).  LaTeX2RTF compiles cleanly as a UNIX program on OS X, as long as you can use Terminal and have Xcode installed:

cd /tmp
svn co https://latex2rtf.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/latex2rtf latex2rtf
cd latex2rtf
make && sudo make install

Using latex2rtf development sources is generally very worthwhile, since releases tend to lag development significantly.  Note that you'll need ghostscript installed for PDF graphics inclusion.
