GNU Radio (etc) via MacPorts Update

I finally finished the gnuradio (and related) ports today, for install
via MacPorts on Mac OS X (mainly 10.6+, but should work on 10.4+).  I
split gr-osmosdr off such that there is a 3.6 API version and a 3.7 API
version -- respective: gr-osmosdr and gr-osmosdr-next.  The GNU Radio
ports are split similarly: gnuradio and gnuradio-devel are for 3.6 API,
and gnuradio-next is for 3.7 API.  gnuradio-devel will track to 'maint'
branch, while gnuradio-next will track the 'master' branch until, and
maybe beyond, the 3.7 release -- I'll deal with that issue when the
release gets there.

Not surprisingly, gr-osmosdr-next requires gnuradio-next; MacPorts will
verify that the correct ports are installed.  gr-osmosdr required either
gnuradio or gnuradio-devel, so I had to add a specific check to make
sure gnuradio-next is not installed.  After quite a bit of testing to
make sure the various tests worked, I pushed the commits yesterday and
today, and I think all is OK again in MacPorts GNU Radio land after last
week's merging of master and next, and moving towards using the 3.7 API
and away from the 3.6 API.

If you have any issue that you believe is MacPorts related, let me know
here, to my email directly, via the GNU Radio discussion list, or via a
MacPorts ticket.  If you use Mac OS X and have an issue with GNU Radio,
no matter how it is installed, I can generally help you out, too.  Happy
hacking! - MLD
