I don't know exactly what to say to that. I don't use heimdal or  
gnome so I haven't run into that problem. For the ports I install,  
they are either software that is not already on Mac OS X, in which  
case the order of the PATH does not matter, or they are newer  
versions of software Mac OS X provides (like php, whois and curl)  
such that the whole point is that I want the newer versions, so I  
most definitely want to list /opt/local/bin first in the PATH. I  
don't consider this adventurous; I consider this correctly  
configured, as documented on the install page in the wiki:


I do recall your heimdal / su problem from earlier on the list, of  
course. But it sounds to me more like the heimdal software or port is  
broken if it installs a su that doesn't work like the system's su.  
You should work with either the authors of the heimdal software or  
the maintainer of the heimdal port to resolve it.
