It seems to start the interpreter without problem:
$ /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/Resources/Python.app/Contents/MacOS/Python
Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Jan 17 2008, 19:35:17)
[GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Inc. build 5465)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

Any further suggestions?
I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.2. I think I had MacPython (or
ActivePython?) 2.5 installed on 10.4.10, before I upgraded to Leopard.
I then deleted the non-bundled version by hand.
