I'm running Gazebo on Mac OS X and I'd like to use the Dart physics engine.

When installing Gazebo, I followed the instructions to compile from source (http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=install). Under "Compiling from Source (Mac OS X)" --> "Optional dependencies", it says to run "brew install gazebo4 --with-bullet --with-simbody", but makes no mention of how to install Dart.

Is this because there isn't Dart support for Mac OS X? Or is there some other command I can run to enable it?

Thanks very much!

Looks like DART is providing a brew formulae, so you can try to patch the gazebo4 formulae to support the use of DART in MacOsX and, if it works for you, please send the Pull Request :)

There is dart support on OSX. You need to add an additional homebrew tap:

brew tap dartsim/dart
brew install dartsim --core-only

There is not yet a --with-dartsim option for gazebo due to some issues with homebrew. If you install dartsim before gazebo, then gazebo will find it.
