Ah - ok, that works! I was used to going thru the ./configure... stuff, then
double-clicking on a gnumeric file, as in version 10. Thanks Lenore.
After that, I installed ImageMagick, and there seems to be no problem with
it either. Next on my list is GDL. I ran into some problems with GDL while
going thru the gnumeric install, but they seem to have gone away after the
succesful gnumeric installation. I will wait and see if there is a problem
with my GDL before MacPorting a new version. As for GIMP, I believe I
installed that from the binary, because so far, I have had no problems with
Thanks to Ryan and Lenore for all the help.
