Not exactly.

Native bindings (the compiled ones) offer besides better performance
(since they are a ruby extension in C), a bit of memory-wise use.

Maybe someone could provide better insight information, but AFAIK, it
is the recommended method of running rails+mysql.

Since I don't have a mac, couldn't point you the right tutorial on
getting mysql extension built on OSX, but try searching google for
"mysql rails bindings osx"

(also "gem install mysql osx" as keywords will raise some good results).
