I've just typed "sudo port install gksu" on terminal, and found large
amount of dependant packages.. so downloading and installing them.

My aim was to use gksu functionality on osx. I was modifying a
textmate bundle for HaXe to run swf files on external flash player by
keyboard shortcut, when doing this at the point of execution of
flashplayer, I lacked sudo priviledges.. so needed to do something
like "gksu" on linux

My question is, ports is downloading too many things, is this normal?
Shall I let it complete its work?
And im feeling like I've just done a very stupid thing, there should
be a workaround for what i am trying to do, is it?
