Hi Von,

The best way to use pass with OSX is via homebrew --
http://mxcl.github.com/homebrew/ . "brew install pass"

This automatically merges the darwin platform specfic file
which uses pb{copy,paste} into the pass script by uncommenting line
124 -- <http://git.zx2c4.com/password-store/tree/src/password-store.sh#n123>.

Hope this helps!
