The only way (that I can possibly think of) to cause this "Interpreter 
not initialized" problem for a module you built yourself is if you have 
more than one Python installed on your computer.  The places to look 
for them, unless for some reason you've set 
Delete all the other ones and stick with what Apple gave you and your 
problems should go away.

You should stop making this so hard on yourself..  besides, PIL is 
available precompiled by way of Package Manager (albeit, missing 
libjpeg and a few other things, but I will have a Panther version of my 
Package Manager repository in a few days that will include a better 
version of PIL).
