It depends - how comfortable are you with building *nix software from source? That is, can you understand the output of "make; make test" and diagnose any problems that might crop up? If not, then ActiveState's Perl & PPM might be a better choice for you. Whatever you choose, you should use it and nothing else. Trying to manage dependencies among multiple package managers is a nightmare. sherm-- -- Cocoa programming in Perl: http://www.camelbones.org
