No, you’re absolutely right. The scary thing is how stupid and sloppy I seem to be.

On the other hand, the list of ports to be removed was huge. How am I to know if it’s OK to remove something like popt?

Isn’t that where Homebrew installs its stuff? I prefer to use MacPorts, but sometimes I need something that doesn’t have a port, like avconv, growlnotify and others.
