7-zip in Mac OS X

I find it annoying that OS X doesn’t come with 7-zip out of the box, and that there’s no download for it on their web site either. Thankfully p7zip exists instead, which you can easily build and install on your Mac, with a swift make / sudo make install. Once you’ve done that, you have 7za on your path to handle 7z files (amongst others).
