Oh, yes, too long.

If you want to have the best version of bluefish, it will be better
to use the unstable tree which has version 1.0.5.
For this you need to install the latest Fink version, install also
Apple X11, which comes with your DVD or CD Mac OS X system
installation and XCode available from Apple Developer Connection.
But if you want to stick with the 1.0.4 version of bluefish, Apple's
X11 is better than XDarwin.
Again see the news on the fink web site, which explains in great
detail your options.
