Sorry, i don't know! But can somebody look at this?

Well, aircrack is available for multiple platforms (see <http://freshmeat.net/projects/aircrack/>), but the driver patches it has (they aren't complete drivers, just patches) are just for Linux. The only other OS represented in the tarball is Win32, and there aren't any drivers or patches there.

And if it is for linux or other os's can somebody port it?

Driver development for MacOS X is unlike driver development for any other OS on the planet. This is not just a simple recompile. You might as well completely re-write the drivers from the ground up. Patches from another OS aren't likely to be very useful, since they are going to be relative to drivers on that other OS, which themselves aren't that useful on MacOS X.
