I installed puppet 3.x on Mac OS 10.8.4 a few weeks back, and now want to remove it.
The installer.dmg does not come with an uninstaller, and there is no .app package to remove.
How do you uninstall puppet from Mac OS X ?

Puppet does not have an uninstaller, you must manually remove the following files. (Tested on 3.2.3)
Remove the following binaries
Remove the following directories
To get rid of the puppet user that appears on the login screen
sudo dscl . delete /Users/puppet
You will need to reboot for the user to disappear
The above answer is incomplete, not all the files are removed with the above commands.
I was able to completely uninstall Puppet (on Mountain Lion) by running the following commands:
for f in $(pkgutil --only-files --files com.puppetlabs.puppet); do sudo rm /$f; done for d in $(pkgutil --only-dirs --files com.puppetlabs.puppet | tail -r); do sudo rmdir /$d; done sudo pkgutil --forget com.puppetlabs.puppet
