I am having some difficulty building a 4-ways universal Python 2.6
on MacOS X 10.5.5/XCode 3.1.1. The hardware I am attempting the build
on is an aging twin-G5 (a 64-bits architecture)...
I am aware of the incompatibility of Tcl/Tk with 64-bits
architectures, which is not an issue for me (I nonetheless installed
the latest ActiveState build, and changed setup.py to first look in /
When I invoke configure thus:
./configure --enable-framework --enable-universalsdk --with-universal-
the operation is a failure (no Makefile is generated) because
configure reports it can't figure out the size of an "int". Removing
the --with-universal-archs="all" option does result in a Makefile
being produced but only for 32-bits architectures. Note that I had to
add the --with-cxx-main=gcc-4.2 option as otherwise gcc-4.0 was
What I have googled so far hints at problems in building what I am
after, but it is unclear if these have been overcome. What am I missing?
