    I was recently looking to recompile gnucash, however neither Fink nor MacPorts has the latest version, however MacPorts has a newer version than Fink. What should I go with? I don't mind compiling from source if need be, so do it on technical merrit rather than which one has the latest version of something. Which one do you guys prefer?

    I prefer MacPorts, but I build it from source so I use /usr/local/ instead of /opt/local
