That makes sense, as Apple probably built it with XCode 4.6 in the first place.

Again, the whole point of fink is to build everything natively.

that was built with XCode 3.* -- originally on 10.6 The point of
distutils (one of them anyway) is to build extensions with the same
compiler, flags, etc as pyton itself -- that means XCode 3, 10.6 SDK
in this case.

I haven't gone to 10.8 yet -- partly for this reason! I know it's a
pain, at best, to build stuff on 10.8 (and XCode4 ) that runs on older
systems, but not sure if/how it can be done if you really need to.

I'd try the pythonmac list -- soem smart folks there (and the people
that maintain the python.org builds)
