thanks - I appreciate the advice, and hopefully a) Leopard will get here in a few months, and b) that will fix this.

It won't work. Your Python is not compiled as a 64-bit program. The whole stack
down to the runtime libraries needs to be built as a 64-bit program. That's easy
enough to do with a single-file C program, but in Tiger the 64-bit runtime
provides very few services, not enough to build Python.
