i have stopped using medium format all together because of this. i usually get 645 scan from my 6x6 negatives and i dont like the wasted space.
A Google search on "photo stitching tools for OS X" (https://www.google.com/search?photo stitching tools for OS X
) brought up a number of interesting hits. Autopano Giga looked interesting, costs about $250, and has a free trial available.
Of course the simpler solution is just to back the camera off a little bit and capture the whole frame in one exposure. I've captured several 6x6 frames with my Olympus E-M1 (gives a 11.9 Mpixel square image) and with my Sony A7 (gives a 16 Mpixel square image) that produced lovely 13x13 inch prints at about 300 ppi output.
(For higher resolution than that, I use a Nikon Super Coolscan 9000 ED film scanner. It can capture up to a 6x12cm film frame in one pass.)
