In most cases saying

fink install libfoo

will also install


if they exist as fink packages..

I agree  with Don that one has to learn a lot of pieces to become a Mac  
and Darwin person.

What can actually help quite a bit are two small O'Reilly books.

1. Learning Unix for Mac OS X  
	Do this one first. This makes you a Unix geek.
2. Mac OS X for Unix geeks (http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/mosxgeeks/)
	Then do this one. It explains fink, for instance.
