I can boot into 10.3 if necessary. How does one build the "unofficial
offical" Python installer? I suppose by running the 'build' script in
Do I need to install other software before trying to build the
installer? Waste springs to mind, BerkeleyDB is another one.

I'd guess that building against an SDK will be hard. I'll probably
look into doing it for PyObjC in the future, as a method for building
a single binary distribution of PyObjC that works on as much OS
versions as possible while giving full access all features in the
