Yes. ./configure and make in libImaging worked, as well as make -f 
Makefile.pre.in boot in the main directory.

Starting at line 2476 I had:

#ifdef WIN32

I removed it, and now make succeeds. However, now when I try to 
import _imaging in Python, I get:

dyld: python Undefined symbols:

This would be very helpful when I am able to use Python 2.1. At the 
moment I'm forced to use 2.0. However, I copied PIL from this kit 
into my python2.0/site-packages, and it seems to work, after 
complaining about a Python C API version mismatch. So in fact, it did 
turn out to be helpful!

Now I got to get JPEG support working... libjpeg also fails to build 
on this system, and the only precompiled package I can find requires 
installing XFree86. Oh well...

Anyway, thanks a lot for the info!
