AFAIK, since macs are just crippled *nix boxes, any nix client should work. (sorry i had to have a dig somewhere! :lol:)

A branch of emule for nix is called aMule:
http://www.amule.org/

And presumably, Mldonkey:
http://mldonkey.org/

That's your client options, or at least the decent ones.

aMule is relatively simple to setup, its a port of emule. MLDonkey is a bit more nixy.

edit:
forgot about lPhant:

I think you can use mono and use it, can't access any of the homepages from work.

Dead Donkey is a mainly ed2k link site.There's also some torrent and newsgroup links. So yeah, in order to download from here you need some kind of a emule client. Don't know much about mac versions but i'm sure there's enough info to be found.
