[ros-users] [Ros-developers] How do I add an additional package management system for an OS?

I was wondering what the appropriate workflow was for adding an additional
package management system to an OS in rosdep.

Specifically, I was looking into building ROS on OS X Lion with Homebrew
rather than macports.  I figured out how to hard code it to use my version
of InstallerAPI (HomebrewInstaller), but I am unclear on how you are
supposed to select a which package system ROS will use on a given
dependency.  For example, if rosdep is trying to check for or install
graphiz, how do I tell rosdep to use homebrew rather than macports?

Thanks in advance,
