Although this link isn't working at the moment, Apple's official stance on defragmentation is that it's largely unneccessary, providing that your volume isn't full or nearly full. Otherwise, OS X takes care of defragmentation on-the-fly.

If you feel the need to defragment anyway, check out iDefrag.
