Actually, I wasn't able to get my Python environment set up with the  
python.org binary . I need OpenMP, which means I need gcc 4.2 ... but  
the python.org binary has no-cpp-precomp and Wno-long-double baked in.  
In addition it sets MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.3 and it uses the 10.4  
SDK's library directory, both of which confuse some packages' setup on  
Leopard. I'd be happy to try the binary if I could get past those
