I'm maintaining pgAdmin package in MacPorts, packaging system for OS  
X modeled initially after FreeBSD ports collection. Hence I'd like to  
be able to build the app from sources, and if there are problems in  
that, I try to get them solved. The build process should co-operate  
with the dependencies, built similarly. The first version in MacPorts  
(at the time DarwinPorts) was 1.4, all versions so far have been  
without problems.

Thanks for the tip, I'm always happy to learn new things!
