Yes, I looked at pgMail, thinking I could put a trigger on some system
table(s). PgMail is a function which produces an e-mail. In other words, its
invoked by a SQL select statement. SQL select typically works against a
table. PostgreSQL's log is stored in a file, not in a table. I have no idea
how to parse a log file using a SQL select statement. Also I can't see how
to send the log to a table (instead of/in addition to a file).

It might be easier to use some Mac OS X utility/ies. 

Anyone have any ideas?

I don't know if it can be useful for you but there is a project called
pgMail.  You need he pl/tclu to run it.

hope it can help you.
