Hey Scott,

I actually thought the macports package you built actually packed up all the
dependencies as well. I was wrong. It would be an easy one click install for
some things then.As I said, this was mostly for one old hosting box I have
for Fedora 8. All the Fedora 9 packages out there, if you can find them are
seriously outdated. So t's matter of building everything from source each
time. Would have just been a time saver.. No big deal though, I'll probably
migrate those clients to an upgraded box soon enough..

Take Care..
