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.
