If you only got warnings about files in unstable… then that may mean that you 
found some outdated advice (if on Fink’s website I’ll fix it) because Fink 
hasn’t used an unstable tree anywhere in several years.  

apt-get downloads and installs pre-built binaries, either from a remote website 
such as our binary distribution, or from the local machine.
