The sort of documentation I was looking for was not how to extend the build script - but what third party C libraries need to be installed in order to perform the standard build.

But that doesn't *tell me* which third party libraries I need to install
first... The fact that the build is automated *once you have the correct
environment in place* doesn't help me *create that environment*. That is
the part I am asking about documentation for.
You mention about have ActiveState Tcl/Tk installed - but that won't
build readline, bsddb and possibly other C extension libraries that are
part of a standard install from a Python.org Mac OS X installer.
> This doesn't work correctly set on 10.6 because Python links to a number of system libraries that have changed in 10.6. We try to get a working binary by using an OSX SDK, but that only works on 10.5 because setup.py looks at system headers instead of the ones in the SDK. I'm working on a fix for that (see issue 7724<http://bugs.python.org/issue7724>), running a 10.5 VM just for doing test builds of the installer sucks.

Having the build working correctly on 10.6 will be great! Thank you for
all you do.
