Not all of them, but many will. Refer to the FINK project:
"The Fink project wants to bring the full world of Unix Open Source software to
Darwin and Mac OS X. We modify Unix software so that it compiles and runs on Mac

Fink uses Debian tools like dpkg and apt-get to provide powerful binary package
management. You can choose whether you want to download precompiled binary
packages or build everything from source. Read more... "
