Superb. I just read through it. It doesn't scare me off. But as i  
haven't got Fink just now, i'll have to first find out if i'm gonna  
use Fink or DarwinPorts. I suppose the later holds the needed deps in  
it's repo too. If I deside to use DarwinPorts, and succeed, I suppose  
I could add a section to the wiki on that.

On a side note: Is the intention of the MetaPkg project to make a  
(joint) package manager or the like?

Brilliant. Just two things for starters:

1) The link to the 'checkout-developer-layout.sh' in the "Checking  
out the code frfrom CVS" section seam dead. From the "How to download  
from the SourceForge CVS" page it seams like it should point to  
developer-layout.sh?rev=HEAD' instead.

2) In the "Building" section it says, "For Pd-extended, you will need  
to apply the required patches to Pd-core before compiling". What in  
rough terms happens to the Pd-core (aka Millers version?) when  
applying that patch?

Agreed, indeed.

I'll look into that, but i think irregular builds will be more  
likely, as it's a laptop computer and not a server in my closet.
