More bits == better? AKA Snow Leopard broke my Gems

Snow Leopard install went fine.  Running methodbox after this didn’t.  ImageMagick, libxml and mysql gems were all broken.  Followed this advice to get it all working.  Boils down to re-install MacPorts, install ImageMagick and libxml2 from ports, re-install the RMagick and libxml-ruby gems, install mysql-64bit, re-install mysql gem (in 64 bit mode).

Easy!!  Only took 2 hours.  So that’s about 4 hours (and 2GB+ downloads) for the snow leopard upgrade so far!

Also found this script for installing ImageMagick.  I couldn’t get it to work but maybe you can.
