OK, I looked at this email again and at some of the info for the built in
extensions that the Python framework build generates (thanks for the machine
access Ralf.. I still had the info written down). And I made some changes to
how the extensions are built by python.jam to be as close as possible to the
above gcc invocation. This is with the idea that if Python itself is
building that way it would seem that doing that way would be the most
compatible way to do things ;-) -- Basically it boils down to not using
bundle_loader when building the extensions, as that is only usefull if you
don't have a framework.

So please try the new darwin-tools.jam and python.jam.
