They've made two bugfix releases since that one.

I don't remember them making bug fix releases before.

I tried to build PyPy on my laptop from macports. I just about stopped it
before it crashed the machine after filling the boot partition with swapfiles.
(Managed to kill it with Activity Monitor - nothing else was responsive)
I'm not sure how much it needs to build, but it wasn't very happy with just 4G
of RAM and a similar amount of swap.

On Linux I installed it as a binary package. This seems to be the way to go
