Current versions of: 
Mac OS: 10.7.4
PHP: 5.3.10 (pretty sure it came with the OS)
phpMyAdmin: 3.5.0

The front page of phpMyAdmin has a warning in red: 
The mcrypt extension is missing. Please check your PHP configuration.

I've seen some instructions that involve (I think) recompiling PHP with the extension but I'm hoping that's not necessary.

Which version of PHP (specifically which PHP port) are you running in your web server? Which variant of the phpmyadmin port is installed?
