[kwlug-disc] open source on Mac without Xcode

I've been briefly looking into MacPorts and friends, trying to figure out
how to install GNU tools and other open source software on a Mac, but
without installing Xcode.

Maybe I'm odd, but it seems strange for free software to have a dependency
on a closed development kit.  Has anyone tackled this before?  Is there
some fundamental reason for Xcode that I'm not aware of?
