It's not that easy to get my brand new MacBook into a good development environment. I want to use it to develop two projects side by side, one in PHP and one in Rails - the rails stuff will be fine, but to just get a quick apache/mysql/php setup running isn't.
I went with fink over darwinports, cause i've used it before and it's the most like Debian - but "apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5" doesn't work at all - there aren't binary packages yet for most fink/Leopard ports so it spent hours compiling but the php5 package fails to build because of some sort of Zend dependency problem. Seriously, they don't have a binary package for php5?? Did I stop paying attention and find that everyone's stopped using fink or something??
