There is now a nmap 4.50 package available in Fink's unstable tree for 
10.4 and 10.5 and zenmap is working fine for me. However, I've had no 
luck building a standalone version outside of Fink. PyGTK is 
fiendishly complicated to get working on OS X.

Note that this package is currently build-from-source only.



I don't run Fink personally (MacPorts user here), but I'm told it 
works.  Unfortunately, building via SVN, package, or anything else on 
Leopard doesn't get Zenmap working-- chokes on GTK errors within 
Python.  I'm tracking this issue, but unfortunately I'm not anything 
approaching a competent coder, so outside of testing crazy things people 
suggest, there's not a lot I can do to assist..

If at all possible I'd like to continue building nmap from source; I'm 
familiar enough with the command line usage that zenmap is more or less 
a "gee that's nifty" feature for me, but it'd still be nice to have...

On another note, does anyone have any particular areas someone who's... 
programmatically challenged can pitch in and help with nmap development?
