I want to use macports via normal install, but this is what I end up having
to do to get wxwidgets installed on Lion.

sudo installer -pkg ~/Downloads/MacPorts-2.1.2-10.7-Lion.pkg -target
sudo chown -R myusername /opt/local
port install p5.12-locale-gettext

remove # in front of build_arch i386
sed -i '' -e 's/#build_arch/build_arch/g'

port install python27
sudo port -f activate python27
# optional line below
# port select --set python python27
port install wxwidgets

# put # back in front of build_arch
sed -i '' -e 's/build_arch/#build_arch/g'
