WinPopUp type messages from FreeBSD to Mac OS X

Anyone know of a command-line program that will pop-up a window on my  
Mac with a message from FreeBSD?
If you ever used earlier versions of Windows, there was 'net  
send' ('course, that was Windows to Windows).

I'd like to find something that I can script to send a lan IM, for  
example: "Filesystem /var is full!"

Getting an IM lets me respond quicker than waiting to read the next  
morning's email.
