(deleted comment about poor use of space and graphics in Windows) The Mac OS X has the Universal Access Zoom option which allows you to 'Zoom' any part of the screen to any size (makes the cursor larger as a result). If you simply want to make the cursor larger (or most anything else to change the cursor) then a utility like Mighty Mouse is a good one (download from versiontracker.com)

Let's keep the focus on tweaks. An option was given for providing one for a larger cursor. Further discussion on what an OS should provide could be taken to the Coat Room.

This is now part of Mac OS X. Not sure when it was implemented. Go into your system preferences, click on Universal Access, and then click on the "Mouse & Keyboard" tab. You can control the cursor size there.
