You can find a lilypond package in the Fink distribution.
However, if watch out if it's version 1.6.6 or 1.6.7, since
then the scalable fonts used in PDF output is broken. 1.6.8
or newer are OK.
I'm not sure if TeXShop uses the kpathsea library that Lilypond
uses to work together with the TeX installation, so you may
need teTeX if you want to build Lilypond yourself.

I am not a Lilypond user as yet, but I would like to try it out. I'm running 10.2.6 on various newer macs. I use TeXShop with Gerben Wierda's TeX distribution installed by his i-installer and I keep the version of TeX up to date. I also have Ghostrcript 7 already installed. So, I have a few questions:

- What is the most pain-free way to install Lilypond on top of my current setup? I have developer tools installed, so I could compile it from source, but I'd need a little guidance on how to do it. I do have some Terminal experience, and I've compiled and installed a couple of things, but I don't quite understand the steps described in the Lilypond how-to-install doc.

- Would it be possible to make a package of Lilypond that would work with GW's i-Installer app? If so this should be a very easy way to install it for mac users. If anyone knows anyone who might be able to do this, please pass along the hint.
