MacOS X uses a funny binary format called Mach-O. BFD
(and therefore GNU binutils) currently don't support
it. The only assembler that does is Apple's which
while open source (it's actually based on GAS 1.38)
won't build anywhere but MacOS X. I hope that clears
things up a bit.

this might be handy, but I admit it's a niche
