Well, my system is up-to-date, with only one gcc on it, so I don't
know what else I can do. I originally missed the line saying "C
compiler: gcc ...". It's odd, because I certainly don't have a
/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk on my system. I wonder if that's there
implicitly because the universal Python 2.5 I downloaded from was built on a 10.4 system.
