I can drastically simplify your hint!

Look, have you bothered to read the hint? I specifically mean the part which begins as:
Unfortunately, the Fink copy is barely usable...
If you did, and what you mean to say is that Fink got an update since I submitted my hint about a month ago, that's good to hear, I'd like you to confirm that:

- using Apple's Terminal.app, mc starts in full color with all F1-F10 function keys and arrow keys properly working in xterm mode
- that you can use Ctrl-O
- that it no longer installs endless amounts of packages which are absolutely unnecessary for a console-mode mc (as opposed to the Gnome version)
- that invoking mc -V says "With subshell support as default," as opposed to without subshell support...

If the answer to all of the above is yes, then I too can wholeheartedly recommend going with the Fink copy.
