I haven't done this for a while.
>From what I recall, the "canned" python build is a 32-bit and I wanted to
try out 64-bit python.
According to my own notes:

building python on Snow Leopard:
./configure --enable-framework MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.6
--with-universal-archs=intel --enable-universalsdk=/
Optionally:  --with-framework-name=python64

After this configure, the usual:
sudo make install

Hope that helps.
