with me....if you plan on doing _anything_ outside of what MAMP provides,
learn to compile your own stuff.  I've lost so many hours to supporting
people(some of my dev staff) who thought MAMP was a great idea, but then
wanted to do something slightly different and it took us days and ended up
destroying MAMP and rebuilding, not b/c we couldn't get it working, but b/c
it was a more sustainable option as more upgrades and updates were needed
in the future, your development environment is never a "install once"
world.  Personally, I compile everything on my iMac, but what about
homebrew?

But to Ben's P.S - Upgrade first, then start installing...what ever your
final decision may be, MAMP, compiling or homebrew.  Especially if you're
moving from PHP4 to PHP5.
