OS X is probably not the platform you want to use if you're doing this
often. Likewise any other rolling upgrade platform (*BSD ports, Linux
Arch/Gentoo/derivatives thereof, Debian unstable or testing, etc.). (Fink
doesn't roll quite as often as MacPorts and Homebrew, but it's still not a
stable development platform; it's more like Debian testing.)
