I've port install yaml, python selected 2.6, ran easy_install-2.6, and then ran pip below. but it gives me erorr saying yaml.h couldn't be found. I look at the g++ command for it, and it shows a include directory /opt/local/Frameworks/.../include...What does that mean? How do i provide /opt/local/include only?

It looks like you need to install libyaml which pyyaml will depend upon. Or if you pass the --without-libyaml it will probably use a pure python implementation that will likely be slower.
