To run OLPC Etoys independly of Sugar - in a Mac, do the following:

1. place the folder you downloaded  —  etoys-image-and-pr  —  to,  
say, the main Squeak folder (under the Applications folder).

2. create an alias (mac term for shortcut) for the etoys.image and  
place it on the desktop (or wherever you like...).

3. if you already have one alias there, now you have two! No problem.  
You can use either, depending on your target. You can't, of course,  
use both simultaneously.
