fink is another alternative package manager, although I'm not really  
sure at this point which one is more reliable/easier to use/has more  
packages. I've used fink in previous versions of OS X, but it always  
takes them a little while to get up & running flawlessly on new OS  
releases. 10.4 & before should work great, 10.5 is still a little  
buggy but they're getting there. If anyone has tested both & has  
thoughts / comments that would be interesting.
