Useful. So that provides instructions to do what I suggested. Run it  
under a X windowing system and install the necessary KDE libraries.  
The only thing I wouldn't do is use Fink but that is because i would  
prefer to do the installations myself rather than end up with a  
parallel directory structure in my system.

So far as I am aware there have been no efforts to port Kile to OS X  
and given the quality of the current OS X editors, little point.
