You can grab a Mac version from Softpedia.

It should also be available in MacPorts in the poppler package.

sudo port install poppler

If using homebrew:

brew install poppler

The current version 3.02pl1 is here: http://users.phg-online.de/tk/MOSXS/ (a little further down the page).

Softpedia is too old
