        Actually, that is questionable.  XCode 4 [the one that comes with Lion] 
no longer includes SDKs or other support for 10.5 or indeed anything that might

don't see how they can work around this problem.  I am also involved with Fink, 
and we are wrestling with this issue as well.  This won't affect 
self-compilation, only cross-compilation.  Therefore, MacPorts and Fink users 
who use their respective system to locally build a binary won't notice a
