  Okay, got the mac mini up and running. I understood that to
  download Xcode, I have to sign up as a developer. I did so, when I
  got to the apple download site I find myself in the
  itunes.apple.com/us/ap/xcode path, I choose "view in app store",
  then click on "free", then am prompted to enter my apple ID and
  pwd, do so, then I'm getting a prompt to review my account info.
  And sent in one friggin' circle after another. Sheesh! Is there a
  way to do this?

  I understand that to use the package management tools, I need
  xcode first.
