I briefly played with Homebrew after saying a sad goodbye to my old buddy Fink. MacPorts has been good to me, but this one has me confused. Why would it build on the iMac (with MacPorts) but refuse to download completely on the Air? Haven’t seen that before. The two machines have identical OS and Developer’s software.
Bottom line, it’s working on both machines now.
