[OS X TeX] MacTeX_Additions binaries/libraries

Hi,
I have another suggestion for the documentation of the MacTeX packages.
As I already pointed out in some previous email, I am concerned (as  
many others) with the idea of installing something in /usr/local/  
without a proper versioning system (e.g., fink or MacPorts). It would  
enough for me to have clearly documented exactly which binaries/ 
libraries (together with Ghostscript and ImageMagick) are installed  
by the MacTeX_Additions package, so that I can actually install that  
stuff using my favourite system (which used to be fink and it is now  
MacPorts) instead of the MacTeX_Additions package.
I know that I could parse the loooong "Show Files" information within  
the installer, but I believe that a shorter list in the documentation  
may be more effective.
Is this doable?
cheers
