It sounds like they work on everything except Intel 10.5 -- is that right?

Well, there are two options now:
1) keep trying to fix that error -- a post to the pythonmac list might
2) Punt, and just build on an older system. It sounds like Vincent may
be able to help out with that.
(I've got a Intel 10.6 system and a PPC 10.5 system now, but I'll
probably lose the 10.5 one soon)

Vincent -- if you are game, I suggest:
Set up a 10.4 system, install the python.org 2.5, 2.6 and 32bit 2.7
On that, build:
>> Python 2.5: 32-bit PPC/i386 for Mac OS X 10.3.9 through 10.6
>> Python 2.6: 32-bit PPC/i386 for Mac OS X 10.3.9 through 10.6
>> Python 2.7 32-bit PPC/i386 for Mac OS X 10.3.9 through 10.6
On a 10.5 system, build:
>> Python 2.7 PPC/i386/x86-64 for Mac OS X 10.5 or later
As for Python 3k -- I have no idea!
I might be able to do the 10.5 builds -- but I don't know for how long.
Do you have the machines (or VMs) to do that?
Thanks so much!
NOTE: are there buildbots somewhere that could be used for this?
