A Unix program called latex2rtf is available at

You can compile it manually but README.OSX coming with the source

so it would not be difficult to install it.

OTOH TeXShop's Typeset menu has several typesetting modes. If you are  
not using them all, you can use one not in use for running latex2rtf.  
For example, if it is Personal Script for LaTeX, open Preferences =>  
Misc => type "/usr/local/bin/latex2rtf" -- without quotes -- in  
Personal Script: Latex Program (no default) and click OK. Then, that  
command -- Typeset (cmd-t) with LaTeX and Personal Script checked --  
will produce filename.rtf from filename.tex in the same directory.

The path /usr/local/bin/latex2rtf is the default location when  
compiling it manually. It would be /sw/bin/latex2rtf if you install  
it via fink. I don't know about i-installer but many on this list  
should know.
