     pkgsrc, a spinoff off of NetBSD, has support for many OSes
including MacOS X.  There are quarterly releases.  There were 10,111
binary packages built for MacOS X in the last quarterly release.

     Here's a link to the last quarterly release announcement:

     Here's a link to an announcement for the binary packages:
http://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-users/2014/01/11/msg019175.html .

     Any questions should probably be taken off-line or to one of
the pkgsrc mailing lists, as this is off-topic for this list.
