I have heard of a couple of packages specificly written for the Mac, but I
don't recall their names; maybe somebody else can supply them.

Porting Majordomo to the Mac would be a major task, I suspect.  Majordomo
pretty much assumes a UNIX-style file system, process structure, and I/O
library.  Unless you have that (or a good enough emulation of it; I think
some folks have ported Majordomo to Windows NT, for instance), I expect
porting to be pretty difficult.
