imagemagick via fink, still no go - Mac Applications & Software

I installed fink, then did sudo apt-get install imagemagick That failed because I don't have xfree86 installed (I really only need the command line tools, but I'll play along.) I was directed to do: sudo apt-get -f install to install the xfree86 stuff, that then failed because I don't have the xfree86 stuff. So now I'm confused, I need xfree86 installed in order to install xfree86. ? I've spent two days simply trying to get Imagemagick installed, I feel like I'm back in the early days of linux! :-) How to proceed?...

    Default imagemagick via fink, still no go

    I installed fink, then did sudo apt-get install imagemagick

    That failed because I don't have xfree86 installed (I really only need
    the command line tools, but I'll play along.)

    I was directed to do:
    sudo apt-get -f install
    to install the xfree86 stuff, that then failed because I don't have the
    xfree86 stuff.

    So now I'm confused, I need xfree86 installed in order to install
    xfree86. ?

    I've spent two days simply trying to get Imagemagick installed, I feel
    like I'm back in the early days of linux! :-)

    How to proceed?

    Then install imagemagick-nox.

    If you want X11 anyway, install Apple's X11 (including the sdk), then
    install the fink placeholder package system-xfree86.
