Unix-based software must usually be built from source code. Furthermore, most

the process of installing Unix-based software as simple as typing a few
commands in Terminal, or by clicking a couple of buttons in a GUI application;
MacPorts will download, build and install not only the program you specify, but
all of the additional components that program requires to run as well.</span></p>
