I know that running an IDS is perhaps something of an esoteric subject, but you did mention using software like CheckMate to perform tripwire-type checks, and Snort seemed conspicuously absent.. :)

There's a great OS X-native installer/utility app called HenWen that installs Snort and provides a very easy to use management interface. It's extremely powerful, and can be configured to log to a database as well as send alerts to a Unix socket so that the bundled notification app can send email and/or pop up a warning dialog.
