I can do it with Garageband, iTunes, and a Bluetooth connection, although it doesn't work with Protected AAC files unless you've converted them and lost the protected format (burned the song to a cd and reimported into iTunes).

- Open a new project in Garageband
- In the Media Browser, drag and drop the song file you'd like to create a ringtone from into the project timeline
- Clip the song to your liking (most phones/services won't accept ringtones longer than 30 seconds)
- Now Save As: choose any compression since iTunes will be compressing the song further
- In iTunes set your import preference as MP3 and nothing higher than 64 kbps
- File >> Import your song file, iTunes will convert it to MP3 for you.
- Drag & Drop the newly created song file in iTunes to your desktop
- Connect to your phone via Bluetooth
- Drag & Drop your song file into the audio folder
- Wipe the sweat from your brow.

wiretap. It is a recording software where you can just record a snippet of the song played with perfectquality and then load it your cellphone and use it as a ringtone.

I've been using Audion recently. They are no longer developing it and have made it free (used to be shareware).

Just another one to add to the list....
