comment What's the equivalent of Linux's updatedb command for the Mac?
Add /opt/local/libexec/gnubin at the start of your path, if you want the coreutils and findutils installed by macports to be available with their original names (and not their g-prefixed versions).

comment How to check what slows down my terminal startup?
I ended up adding alias loadvw="source /Users/me/Library/Python/2.7/bin/virtualenvwrapper.sh"; workonenv(){source ~/.virtualenvs/$1/bin/activate} to my ~/.bashrc, because workon is essentially the only missing everyday command (deactivate becomes available after activation), unless you create and delete envs every day.

comment How to change FireFox switch tab shortcut on OS X?
An observation: although 1 ships ready for use, it still requires that the 2nd hand leave the pad, defying the purpose of switching windows and tabs with only the left hand. So #5 with Cmd +1 (previous) and Cmd +2 proves to be the best solution, because it is also next to the closely related Cmd +` and Cmd +tab.

@ChrisHerbert: Although cmd +# is available, it is useless when you have 20 tabs open. You can ergonomically manage as many using e.g. side tabs.

Please accept the answer, I spent a considerable amount of time searching on Google, before it led me here (I was expecting a stackexchange answer from the start, but it took time until it surfaced).

comment using xargs to cd to a directory
Using @Slartibartfast for auto-generated paths: cd `port file libcudd | sed -e 's/\/Portfile//'` (usually long ones you don't want to handle manually, like this MacPorts Portfile location).

comment Unable to execute port when installing ImageMagick
Command line approach: port file foo for the path to port foo's Portfile, then cd there and chmod +r Portfile. Next sudo port install foo should work.
