Yes.

Emacs 23 will automatically pick up the libraries for anti-alias font
during the "./configure" stage before compilation as long as you have
the libraries installed. You need the freetype2 library (truetype font
support), the xft library (anti-alias font), at the minimum. You will
need libotf for OpenType support, m17n-lib and m17n-db for good
multilingual font text shaping.

After the compilation, start emacs with the -fn argument. For example:

,----
| emacs -fn "DejaVu Sans Mono-12"
`----

This will use the DejaVu San Mono font for the buffer. You should always
pick a mono spaced font. The UI font can be defined in your ".gtkrc-2.0"
config file. For example:

,----
| gtk-font-name="Sans Serif 10"
`----

There may be precompiled binaries for Mac OS X. I don't know.

P.S. As an aside, since I have not really use Mac OS X before, I was
curious to find out how services are implemented. I came across this
article which you might be interested in:
