You need all this shit just to get a usb library working? Opeen Soooouuuuuurce!!!!

Its like I'm really in Linux!


  1. You need 2 versions of Perl and Python? What's next, gcc? ...oh wait, it wants gperf.

  2. Only one specific version of python is needed, but it does need two versions of perl.

    gcc, probably not since macports already knows that gcc is already installed via xcode.


Made me post. 0/10.
