Looked everywhere, found nothing :-(. Nearest possibility I found was the source code for a Gimp plug-in (for Windows, but at least there is some source):

Gimp is available for OS X at least, so you may be able to convert the plugin if it uses no internal windows APIs.

Download winebottler and AniFX, install AniFX into a standalone bottle. That's what I did. You'll need X11 as well.

Graphic Converter for Mac will save to a .cur file format.
