After having a go with homebrew I decided that macport's use of /opt/local is significantly less likely to screw up my system, so I am now quite firmly on the macport side of the camp.  One good thing homebrew has though is the fact it only requires the command line tools, not the whole Xcode installation.  Is a macports -Xcode +CLT ever going to happen?
