Setting up a Drupal development environment with lighttpd in Mac OS X

After upgrading to Leopard I finally got fed up with MAMP. I've been using it for development for quite a while, but found it dog slow and I never got the GUI tools to work right under 10.5. I've been using on servers and decided to give it a go on my MacBook Pro. It runs superbly.
