    Just got my first mac and don't know how the hell to use it. I'm trying to build GTK-OSX but I haven't got a clue what I'm doing.

    On another note, do you find MacPorts useful?

    I really just don't know where to start with all this. I'm getting the idea that OS X 10.6 makes it very hard to use anything of the third party.

    thanks

    /usr/local/bin should already exist on your computer. Of course, you will need to sudo up if you want to put anything there.

    As for GTK-OSX, this wasn't any help?

    Kind of sounds like you're trying to use your Mac like Linux. Most of the apps you'll use get installed in the Applications folder through drag 'n' drop. You generally won't need to mess with the root folders and MacPorts type applications unless you're doing development.
