I don't think it installs it, but the MacTeX distribution installs 
i-installer, which you can use to install latex2rtf.  Remember, gwTeX 
(and i-installer) isn't dead, it's just that Gerben no longer 
provides support.  The packages themselves are still updated 
regularly.  Many of us actually have both distributions running on 
our machines (overkill, perhaps, but sometimes it comes in handy.)

So you have two options: you could continue using Gerben's gwTeX (but 
update your installation to the version based on TeX Live) or you 
could install the MacTeX distribution and use the included 
i-installer to install latex2rtf. (Of course if you interpret the 
'or' inclusively you have a third option.)
