From the Fink Sourceforge Homepage:

The Fink project wants to bring the full world of Unix Open Source software to Darwin and Mac OS X. We modify Unix software so that it compiles and runs on Mac OS X ("port" it) and make it available for download as a coherent distribution. Fink uses Debian tools like dpkg and apt-get to provide powerful binary package management. You can choose whether you want to download precompiled binary packages or build everything from source.

Fink hacks are available for SoulSeek (music file sharing peer-to-peer software), and The GIMP (Free graphic-editing software), as well as many other programs.

The patch previously listed here (to answer someone's wishes) to port sdlBasic to OSX has been merged into the main tree...so any release on or after 2004-08-01 will work with Mac OS X!
