I did not understand. If i install something, that already exists, for 
example cvs or sed or bash, that replaces my OS X files ind there is no 
way to go back, isn't it? I don't want to use two "distros", fink and 
gentoo-osx, so if i try it i want to try all packages i need, then try 
to solve problems as good as i can, but when i realise, that i cannot 
work with it, i want to get rid of it and return to fink, which i'm not 
happy with but which is usable.

I would be very pleased to be able to help you but there is this one 
step i will not go, sorry.

Philipp
