Hi Richie,

I just ran through this again with the latest versions of everything,
and it still worked for me on OSX 10.6.8.  You're right that there is
no libusb 2.0...  The first thing I'd want to double check is that you
installed libtool & libusb-devel via macports, and that you did the
+universal for libusb:

$ sudo port install libtool
$ sudo port install libusb-devel +universal

If that doesn't help and you want to shoot a few emails back and forth
to get this going, contact me off list.  We can post back here if we
have some more info that's useful for others.
