If you're new to Mac OS X and don't want to have to deal with compiling 
or porting software packages, I'd check out Fink 
(http://fink.sourceforge.net). From the Fink website:

"The Fink project wants to bring the full world of Unix Open Source 
software to Darwin and Mac OS X. We modify Unix software so that it 
compiles and runs on Mac OS X ("port" it) and make it available for 
download as a coherent distribution. Fink uses Debian tools like dpkg 
and apt-get to provide powerful binary package management. You can 
choose whether you want to download precompiled binary packages or build 
everything from source."

Once you have fink installed, installing graphviz is as simple as typing 
'fink install graphviz'. Fink will also take care of dependencies...
