If the document's not too too complicated, I think KWord has both .doc 
and .rtf import filters and a LaTeX export filter. I never tried them, 
so don't ask me about the quality, but that might be worth a try...

KWord kan be obtained from Fink and, AFAIK, from DarwinPorts... It's a 
pretty big download and compile job, but it's fully automated. Never had 
any trouble with it in Fink.
