i don't think they distribute binaries for mac os x, so more than likely you downloaded the source. if you have the developer tools installed you can build bx yourself.

you need dlcompat

untar the archive and configure with --without-gtk --without-ssl then run make and make install. usually things install into /usr/local unless you configure with a different prefix (--prefix=/somewhere/else).

it appears as thought macosx.forked has c18 but not the newer c19. again if you don't mind building from source you can use darwinports or fink to do all the work for you...
