  The Mac OS X native executable file format is Mach-O. Is that what you
  mean by a variant of the a.out format? - The latter is for UNIX like
  kernels, and the for the Mach kernel.
Mach-O is based in the old aout format used on BSD systems in the
80'ies.  This wasn't a bad format at the time, System V derived systems
used something more limited, known as COFF.
