some people stay rightly away from either Fink and MacPorts, as these  
are quite far from a vanillla MacOSX. I certainly don't use them and  
still can build and install all that I need from sources. It would  
make sense to keep those patches in the source in some system specific  
directory (or in a contrib directory).
