I'm not sure what the problem is exactly, but is it weird that
there's something to do w/ 'i686' when you're running on a powerbook
being that the pbook is PowerPC?
I noticed you also have this in your log:
C compiler: gcc -arch ppc -arch i386 -isysroot /Developer/SDKs/
MacOSX10.4u.sdk -fno-strict-aliasing -Wno-long-double -no-cpp-precomp
-mno-fused-madd -fno-common -dynamic -DNDEBUG -g -O3
(it's the i386 that looks weird to me)
I don't really know if that's a problem, though -- how are you trying
to install it, are you just doing a "python setup.py build" and
"python setup.py install"?
FWIW, my version of XCode gcc is actually 4.0.1 -- perhaps there's a
newer version of XCode for you to install? I am on an intel mac,
