Setting up trac on OSX
Yeowch that was harder work than it should have been. Firstly I have installed ‘stuff’ before via port, NEVER again (well almost never). Darwin port installs apps into /opt/… it will manage the dependencies of an installation (but removing an app does not remove the dependencies).
