Description

I just wasted hours because I didn't notice the following sentence in the KyngChaos packages section of the GeoDjango installation instructions [1]:

https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.4/ref/contrib/gis/install/#kyngchaos-packages

"Afterwards, you can also install the KyngChaos binary packages for PostgreSQL and PostGIS."

I didn't see the sentence, and so I installed PostgreSQL from brew, and found too late that the KyngChaos packages should really all be installed together.

Clearly this is partly my fault, but given that this is really an instruction not an aside, perhaps it could be made more obvious? I'd pull it out into a separate paragraph, and make it much clearer that it's an instruction.
