1) Install the OSX developers' tools (so you get gccc)
2) Install Fink: http://fink.sourceforge.net/
3) Launch the Terminal and type 'fink list'

Oh yeah
http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/unix_open_source/ is kinda handy
are kinda useful

  Now playing on iTunes: "Eight Miles High" by The Byrds - a hit from 
way back in 0 from 'Fifth Dimension'
