Yes, currently this is on purpose.

I personally think that using the Unix Domain socket should be a little safer
than using localhost. That's the reason we used this method. Does your
postgis installation only listen on localhost or does it listen on the socket

Not that I know yet. But it would be great, if we could separate the setting
of how to connect to the database from the rendering style stuff.

If you find any way to change/improve this I'd be happy.

Well the mapnik stuff should be the same for Gpsdrive , generate-types.py,
At least at the moment. So I thought it would make sense to install it to one
central mapnik directory.

I fixed some of the kismet stuff. But someone who is using kismet more than I
do should really test it. I Only had one Accesspoint here. This one
Accesspoint was displayed. But I havn't tried driving around or other stuff.
So please test this!!!
