Using macports to install py25-pil is installing just a ton of unrelated stuff

It's been going for an age and things I have seen scroll past include such gems as libX11, ncurses and my personal favorite: perl5!

"python25 is a rather kitchen-sink build.

It depends on tk, which depends on Xft2 … that's where some X11 stuff comes from.

There's a script available to show all dependencies involved."

Macports installs in a separate location, I think /opt, so you don't have to worry about polluting your system.
