[postgis-users] WKT raster installation on Mac Snow Leopard

I want to put my vote in for a MacOS package.  I spent several weeks
trying to correctly identify the paths without success.  From what I
can tell, the problem is not having a lot of the dependencies through
various dev packages.  When I finally got around to getting it
compiled in Ubuntu, I spent quite a while installing "other" things to
get all the dependencies satisfied.  But at least I was prompted
during the config stage as to what the necessary steps were.  If you
can also get the packaged to interface with the enterprisedb version
of postgres (vastly different paths from the Kyngchaos one) you'll
open the project up to a whole suite of others!  You may even get some
publicity/support from enterprisedb themselves.

I volunteer myself to take care of it, but your website is the reference for downloading postgis binaries for mac os x! So ideally should be there.
