Why use /sw?
Authored by: SeanAhern on Mar 06, '07 11:31:47AM

I've been using mutt for a while, but didn't know about the sidebar patch. Looks nice, and I'm following your directions now.

One question: why do you install in /sw? I mean, if you are bypassing fink, why do you go and install where fink lives? Once you do that, you now have /sw in an inconsistent state, where fink thinks mutt is not installed, but it actually is. I would think it would be better to install pretty much anywhere else (other than /opt for similar reasons).
