The latter is an important aspect: Fink satisfies all dependencies a  
package has by installing all missing software. In case of hevea  
there are two: ocaml (to compile the source files) and a valid TeX  
installation. The latter dependency can be satisfied by making Fink  
install system-tetex, a name for MacTeX or gwTeX or TeX Live. The  
former dependency is not so easy satisfied: X11 and libncurses are  
needed. Again, the former can be Apple's X11, the latter requires  
more packages. Trying to accomplish this job "by hand" can be rather  

To make work with Fink easier, not needing to work on the command  
line, Fink Commander exists: http://finkcommander.sourceforge.net/
