That's true for MacPython, the version that runs on both OS9 and OSX,=20
but not for native MacOSX Python (like the one installed into /usr/bin=20=

by Apple).

But if you want to use PIL with Apple's Python it's fairly easy, just=20
run setup.py. Only if you want optional things, like JPEG support, you=20=

will have to download the needed libraries yourself, and edit setup.py=20=
