I recommend users that build a lot of software avoid Fink altogether. More often than not, it creates redundancies across your system that can cause problems when software builds try to link to libraries. This comes mainly from the fact that Fink only looks in /sw for its dependencies when it installs software, even though libraries may exist elsewhere. This is problematic (and lazy). I say: Dont use it!
