I haven't used it extensively, but Rudix rescued me from package management hell with a working install of 'gettext'. I tried half a dozen different sets of install instructions, including MacPorts and Fink, and ran into trouble with all of them. With Rudix, I just downloaded a standard .pkg file, ran it, and had a working install. Smooth and easy.

Tried two packages: wget & lame, both failed to install: installer error.
