Hi all,

I wanted to build Leopard on my 10.5 MacBook and perhaps also on my 
other Macs. provide binaries that work on 10.6 and up and run natively 
without X11. I use them with quite some success on my 10.6.8 Mac.
The way of installing through MacPorts is recommended by itself.

I tried installing with +no_x11 but I still get all X11 dependencies 
pulled in.
I wonder if I still get the "quarts" version and the dependencies come 
from a dependent package or not. Can they be avoided?

Also, apple-gcc42, clang-3.4, gcc6 and gcc7 get installed! That is quite 

Furthermore I wonder if it will build on 10.5? I would find it extremely 
And 10.4 + PPC? :)
