This really doesn't matter?  Changing the variable changes the  names of the
directories that are created in the build subdirectory.  Does it also affect
how the build process finds Frameworks?  I have Frameworks for 10.3.9 and
10.4 (this computer was upgraded from 10.3.9 to 10.4).  I built numpy with
MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.4 and it passed all the tests.
