Darwine <http://darwine.opendarwin.org> is aiming to do this for windows apps.
- it's in development and not ready for production use yet.
In order to run Linux apps on MacOS X, the emulation layer would have to
translate system calls, etc. to Darwin calls, whereas for x86 Linux on
(something else) Linux, the system calls themselves are the same.
In this interview <http://www.osviews.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file
=article&sid=2046>, Jim White says he's interested in Linux emulation on Macos
X. There was a discussion on this mailing list a few weeks ago about Darwine
where Linux emulation got mentioned - you might also want to check out.
