For 2.5.x I used to following procedure.
* An Intel Mac running 10.4.x
* Have the latest version of XCode for Tiger systems installed
* Have Tcl/Tk for OSX installed
(Needed to make it possible for people to use a newer Tcl/Tk with
Tkinter and IDLE
without rebuilding _tkinter themselves. The version of _tkinter
by this procedure also works when Tcl/Tk is not installed on a
* Make sure /opt/local and /sw do not exist, to avoid contaminating
the build with DarwinPorts/Fink bits
* Use the script in Mac/BuildScript to actually build the installer DMG
This will download a number of components (such as sleepycat DB),
builds all required software
and assembles the installer.
I used to test the installer on a 10.3.9 PPC system, a 10.4 system and
a 10.5 system.
