LEG has a MacPorts mirror for OSX users.
To configure it, install macports (you’ll need XCode installed) and then follow the following configuration instructions:
/opt/local/etc/macports/macports.conf and change the following lines to:
rsync_server ftp.leg.uct.ac.za rsync_dir pub/packages/macports/release/base/
/opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf, comment out the existing source and add the following:
You should now be able to verify that MacPorts is using LEG, by updating it:
$ sudo port -v sync $ sudo port -v selfupdate
You should see LEG banners go past, before it downloads files.
