I'm not seeing the test_distutils failure you report on my own 10.5 machine, for some reason.
I don't think it's OSX specific. My FreeBSD slaves (both 6.4 and 7.2) have been getting the same error.
It seems related to the sticky bit on /tmp and the fact that the account running the build slave is in the wheel(0) group, so directories/files created beneath /tmp get a group of 0 rather than the user's gid. That affects the temporary files in the distutils test, which is expecting a default of os.getgid().
