I have been able to use the following packages successfully with Mac OS X Tiger and fink. I am not the primary maintainer of most of these packages, nor did I write any of the applications. I do try however to keep my own local fink .info files up to date for others to take advantage of. I also mail the maintainers of patches I needed get the latest releases built.

Microcontroller and EDA Apps
Rather than grabbing each fink info/patch file I recommend grabbing this bzip’d tarball bundle (16kB).
