...fink is what I've used for the last 4 years...I've had no "show- 
stopper" problems, just make sure you're grabbing from cvs/rsync...it  
also installs both dylibs and statics, and dylibs will be linked  
against before statics (unless you make things explicit), but this is  
only meaningful if you are looking into portability between machines...
