New submission from Skip Montanaro <skip at pobox.com>:

The topic of the vileness of Fink or MacPorts came up in python-dev when
discussing building a Mac installer.  I remembered that a couple /sw and
/opt/local directories are searched unconditionally, making it a bit
more challenging for someone to create a framework build which didn't
rely on one or the other.

The attached makes the addition of /sw/... or /opt/local/... directory
searches conditional on the presence of /sw/bin or /opt/local/bin in
PATH.  I don't have more time to expand upon the concept more, but it
might also be useful to exclude other platform-dependent optional
directories from searching (such as /opt/sfw for Solaris).
