How difficult is generally to fix those? Just matter of using
libtool? Are there any general guidelines how to deal with binary-only,
=2Edmg style distributed software, such as opera? =20

I've seen some unofficial results:

I've noted e.g. Python and PHP4 didn't package. Actually, looking at
it again, it seems only older versions of Python don't build, which
is fine with me. Checking the list from the above post, most of packages
I actually use seem to work (are not included in the 'broken' list).
Good work :)

Is there any reason a binary bootstrap isn't available for Darwin/i386?
