Hmm, Macports. It's great for those who want a familiar packagae-
manager setup or just don't want to get their fingers dirty compiling
source. It adds itself to your PATH and can cause trouble for non-
Macports builds (getting wrong versions of tools in the system, like
GNU vs. BSD versions, wrong libs linked). I don't mean to start a
debate over it, just pointing out that you might want to look at
trying to do things the Mac way first, like installers where available.
Python does have up-to-date installers for a more Mac-standard Python
