In theory BRugs on Mac OS X could talk to OpenBUGS running the latter
under WINE. Except on 32-bit Windows, BRugs works by running a helper
executable that is linked to OpenBUGS. So that helper would need to be
compiled under Windows and be run through WINE. Just installing BRugs
from the sources on OS X would not achieve that: you would need to build
BugsHelper under Windows (possibly via WINE) and alter the BRugs sources
to run it via WINE.
As others have said on R-sig-mac, it would be almost certainly be
simpler to modify your task to run using JAGS via rjags, and most likely
simpler to run BRugs under R for Windows using a Windows emulator (WINE
