Anyone using macports out there? If not I definitely recommend them for folks wanting to dig into the unix side of macs. Many apps are in the ports that wouldn't normally be available to you.

I've used them for a few things, definitely. Most of the Unix tools I need I've found outside of MacPorts so I've just installed them myself, or will (:gasp:) use a bundle installer like the MySQL one. KISS. :-)

I realize this is an ancient post and you might not care anymore, but if you are looking for easy package installations, check out HomeBrew.  I haven't used Macports in forever because of it.  It is easy to use and keep up to date and has an extensive list of uses.
