VNC is generally compatible across platforms. There are several OSX compatible VNC servers and clients, including the built in OSX VNC support. (This does NOT work so well with Lion though; Apple broke things.)

I just finished up my OSX Lion hackintosh a few hours ago, so far I've found that Chicken of the VNC is a great viewer matched with an UltraVNC server.
Connecting to a TightVNC 1.3 server caused a crash but otherwise it seems to do the trick.

Just found out that a developer has started working on a new project simply called Chicken which is based on the old COTVNC code base.

It fixes the TightVNC issue I mentioned previously. :)

I hope they made other improvements; CotVNC is a pretty barebones affair.
