Although I don't have access to a Mac, people usually don't like
Gtk there.  But there seems to be a native port somewhere that is
going to be merged into Gtk+ someday :).

Now, good support today for Mac OS X would be my only reason to
go through the wxWindows route.  I use Gtk+ because back in the
days that I tried wxWindows, it had a terrible appearence when
using Gtk as a backend, but probably things improved since then.
