Hi Dave - Thanks for the links- I will check them out. MacPorts can
resolve dependencies that are specified for each package, much like
rpm and other linux packaging systems, so its probably better to
disable the dependency resolution in the bioperl build script and let
macports handle them. It looks like I can patch the build.PL script
pretty easily, unless I can find a better way.
