Try wakeonlan or wol -- both are open source, both are available through mac ports (and possibly through homebrew as well).

the wakeonlan link above is dead; this tool works great: readpixel.com/wakeonlan –  Art Jul 16 '14 at 3:56
Alternatively, you can simply install Homebrew and use homebrew install wakeonlan from Terminal. –  Rampant Jul 31 at 17:16
