Clarifying eggs

Can you clarify the use of eggs for me? Does the user still
have to be concerned with installing libraries such as
FreeType, libpng and zlip, or does the egg include these
(statically linked?) or install them somewhere? If the
user must have the libraries, must they be in some special
place (e.g., /usr/local vs. Fink's path)?

Thanks,
Tom

They are statically included with windows just as they were before.
     Virtually every linux distribution has png/freetype/zlib as part
of they base package set, and if not they are easily installable, so
these are dynamically linked in the eggs I posted on sf.
     In the case of osx I linked against static libraries of png and
freetype and added them to the egg. Zlib is included with osx. So,
no you don't have to worry about png/freetype. Here is the link again
for the osx.4 eggs: http://euclid.uits.iupui.edu/~cmoad/mpleggs/ . I
would really like to hear from anyone if they attempt to use these
whether they worked or not. That way I know whether they should be
posted on sf as well.

Forgive my ignorance, but what are eggs? How do you use them?
