Well, I had Gentoo-PPC (not OS X), and I liked it, despite certain
frustrations. I eventually abandoned it for Ubuntu, but I'd still like
to have something similar on my new Mac.

Fink won't update for me, for reasons I don't fully understand. I
tried to compile from source, but I can't get GCC. I'm already
considering ditching Mac OS X for Ubuntu...

I've seen all that. I'm looking for testimonials.

Yes, as through this world I've wandered
I've seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.
