I didn't know that.

Aehm, one question arises...
Why doesn't Apple gives us power users a way to manually ./configure 
everything in the OS? I could imagine that it is not only me having a 
need for a customized ssh, cups, apache (I have a need especially for 
apache!!), well and I am shure there are other examples.

Since everyone can download darwin and dvd's getting cheaper and 
cheaper Apple should deliver that part of the OS which consist of open 
source, as source code and give (optionally) a way to see default 
./configuers and to change it. Well, optionally for power users.

Thanks for the feedback!

I will post the link to my documnt here on the list and you can tell me 
what you think. Mid-next-Week.

Greetings to all , I have a buisy week...
