Who wrote this? This tip is totally invalid. The fink package has been updated. configuire/make is not required. All that is needed is "fink install imagemagick". And what is with the first install command? Not needed in any case.

Ah, nm i see the patch is to disable X. (but why?) Anyway, the first "fink install" is not needed. You can just edit the patch file then do fink install imagemagick.

I'm the author.

I simply reported my step-by-step experience, with appropriate caveats. Without making the changes, it did not work. I have no idea why.

My objective in posting was to alow someone with similarly limited expertise be able to complete an IM install for OSX with perl available. As there were no pre-existing cookbook step-by-steps, I think my post should be helpful.

Unless of course, it's not.
