I highly recommend these.

William, would you consider having your Frameworks put links in to the 
executables in /usr/local/bin ? That might be handy. Or maybe link them 
all to one location in /Library/Frameworks, and then put that in the PATH.

For instance, I have:
# Setting PATH for GDAL Current

# Setting PATH for MapServer Current

in my .profile, but it's getting a bit tedious to keep adding each one. 
That's one thing I've always liked about *nix -- there are standard 
places to put stuff, so I don't need to add a bazillion things to my 
PATH, like I did in the DOS days. And symlinks let you have the best of 
both worlds!
