gcc_select is completely broken, and doesn't work. It assumes that the
only 3.x is 3.1 and fails even at what it claims to do. I have tried
and failed to fix the script, eventually doing all (I hope) the
appropriate re-linking by hand.

I definitely agree with you on Fink (doesn't work at all right now
because of gcc issue above, and it always had problems with various X
implementations, but when it does work it's pretty nice), and only
learned about DarwinPorts just now, so thank you!

Oh, yeah, back to the topic. Guess I don't have anything to add except
to say that requiring all these bolt-on tools in order to install
mailman is a bit harsh for non-admins...
