Lapointe and Kirsch have created a number of programs to help with this
problem, and have published several papers about and using their methods.
You can start on that literature (and find those programs) by reading:
Lapointe, F.-J., and J. A. W. Kirsch. 1995. Estimating phylogenies from
lacunose distance matrices, with special reference to DNA hybridization
data. Mol. Biol. Evol. 12:226-284.
I think they have Mac versions of their programs, although I'm not quite sure.
