 > Because the macports version of mongo3 was missing the essential files
 mentioned, I went to the MongoDB standard download (.tgz) and installed
 that instead.  I don't know what is meant by "we install everything the
 developers of mongodb intend us to install," because their standard .tgz
 download includes all these things.

 It means: all we do in the MacPorts mongodb portfile is download the
 source, run `scons all mongobridge mongosniff` to build it, and then run
 `scons install` to install it, and then we manually install mongobridge
 because `scons install` doesn't do that. This has not changed between
 mongodb 2 and 3. What has changed is that the developers of mongodb have
 changed what happens when `scons all mongobridge mongosniff` and `scons
 install` are run. If you believe the developers of mongodb should not have
 changed that, then you'll need to discuss that with the developers of
 mongodb; it was not our decision; we were not consulted.

 I will investigate. Thanks for giving me the URL; I had not yet gotten
 around to discovering where they had moved the tools.
