On linux, the graphviz package install a bunch of libraries and a bunch of
commands. The commands are:

|    Graph layout programs
|        dot    filter for hierarchical layouts of graphs
|        neato  filter for symmetric layouts of graphs
|        twopi  filter for radial layouts of graphs
|        circo  filter for circular layout of graphs
|        fdp    filter for symmetric layouts of graphs
|        All of the filters work with either directed or undirected graphs, though dot  is  typically
|        used for directed graphs and neato for undirected graphs.  Note also that neato -n[2] can be
|        used to render layouts produced by the other filters.
|    Graph drawing programs
|        lefty  A Programmable Graphics Editor
|        lneato lefty + neato
|        dotty  lefty + dot
|    Graph layout enhancement
|        gvcolor
|               flow colors through a ranked digraph
|        unflatten
|               adjust directed graphs to improve layout aspect ratio
|        gvpack merge and pack disjoint graphs
|    Graph information and transformation
|        gc     count graph components
|        acyclic
|               make directed graph acyclic
|        nop    pretty-print graph file
|        ccomps connected components filter for graphs
|        sccmap extract strongly connected components of directed graphs
|        tred   transitive reduction filter for directed graphs
|        dijkstra
|               single-source distance filter
|        bcomps biconnected components filter for graphs
|        gvpr   graph pattern scanning and processing language
|        prune  prune directed graphs
|    Other
|        gxl2dot, dot2gxl
|               GXL-DOT converters

There is no "graphviz" executable as such. I would expect a similar setup
on MacOS. The man page refers to http://www.graphviz.org/Documentation.php
for more info.
