Hi Jonas,

haha I see.  It seemed very easy at the time, though.  The binaries were
just there, so I linked them.  The reason for doing it that was was just
that the installer/FAQ mentioned using the "Unix tools" option in the
installer, but the "installer" is different now the App Store and has no

If there is a "proper" way to do things, though, of course it would be
better to update the documentation and installer to reflect that.  I have
to wonder, though, what does the official way do?  The same thing I did?
 Or does it install separate tools?

Thank you,
    Noah Silva
