Well, but wait, this means that the tcpflow port cannot be used on  
Mac OS X Leopard unless the user builds MacPorts from trunk, right?  
macosx_deployment_target wasn't added to MacPorts until r30396 on  
October 26, 2007. And I thought we always want to keep our ports  
working on the currently-released version of MacPorts.
