[Edu-sig] Python and Tk on MacOSX

There are instructions for building a binary distribution outlined in /Python-2.3.3/Mac/OSX/README and detailed in /Python-2.3.3/Mac/OSX/Dist/README.txt. I haven't tried it but they make it sound easy :-)

The MacPython-SIG might be a better place to get help with this, that is where the MacPython pros hang out...I'm happy to help but I'm not an expert.

I'm kind of surprised that there isn't a distribution available with Tk support. I think you are right that building from source is more than most Mac users would consider. Though maybe not such a stretch for a developer.
