Yes, it is written in C, anybody may download sources and check it. The part of program which generate maps use advantages of Metapost and TeX, but this is not the question of UI.

However, I have run Compass on a Mac using Windows emulation (VirtualPC), and currently have it running on a dual-boot MacBook with Windows 7 installed. I don't know what hardware you are running, but you should be able to install Windoze onto any Intel-based Mac. (I tried to run Compass under OSX using WINE a couple years ago, with only partial success. It should be do-able, but I didn't have time to work at it)
Compass is a great program - I think you'll find it well worth your time to find an implementation!

I re-installed Wine and Winetricks using macports (after re-installing and updating macports as well). Downloaded a new copy of Compass, installed it via the wine command line, and - lo and behold! - Compass is running flawlessly on my Mac! Not quite as smooth as on Windoze, but no complaints. Fantastic - I finally have Compass running on my preferred platform!
