macports vs. homebrew

>sudo port install imagemagick

Goes for 40 min, still not done, I got bored and stopped. And my laptop was overheating.

>brew install imagemagick

Done in 15 seconds.

The reason is that macports compiles everything and the ports are very granularized, while with homebrew most items are less granularized and are precompiled.
