The biggest trouble I had building on 10.6 is that you need the svn trunk/
version of FLTK if you want to build it for x86_64. That and the configure
scripts for VMD are weird and take a lot of hacking to specify libraries from
a generic location (in my case, setting to /opt/loca/lib to build against
macports installed python & other libs).
