i hate fink

Now I remember why I switched back to linux.

The people working on fink mostly distribute their newest code via source. Which means building the frigging thing when you want to install something. Unfortunately when the think you want is dependent on something like say kde it can take a really long time to build.

I wish they'd been more debian like and had some auto build system to keep their binary distribution up to date.
