        Well, as I recall darwin7 was/is OSX 10.3 and 'larry' was running
        that up until earlier this year - so it's not surprising that
        darwin7 worked ok.  Don't know about darwin6 since it's been eons
        since I had an OSX 10.2.x system around.  Can't remember if I was
        tracking/building libcdio at that time or not.

        That's fine - got that too :)

        Lots of things aren't installed by default (peak at /usr/local/src
        on larry some time :-)) -  libcddb 1.2.x for example (minimum version 
        changed recently - not a big deal, went and installed it :)).

        But if one less thing depends on libpopt that's fine - always wondered
        why getopt() wasn't good enough anyhow :)
