Mac Documentation Issue

The advice to set DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/local/lib on Mac OS X is really bad. Because MacPorts has several old and incompatible versions of widely used libraries (libJPEG, libTIFF, and others), setting this in the bash_profile can make all sorts of applications crash. If the library path needs to be set, do it before application start, but not system wide.

Where is this advice made? I grepped through the branch from right now and from a couple of months back and couldn't find any such recommendation.

I find no mention of DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH or anything similar anywhere in django trunk or in 1.0.x. Indeed, the discussion referenced does not mention Django.
