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.
