OS:  MacOS 10.4.4
System: 1GHz / 1GB RAM
Python: 2.3.5

Using MacPython's PackageManager to install PIL, came to following 
problem (at end of quoted text):

version       1.1.5
platform      darwin 2.3.5 (#1, Mar 20 2005, 20:38:20)
               [GCC 3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 1809)]
--- TKINTER support ok
--- JPEG support ok
--- ZLIB (PNG/ZIP) support ok
*** FREETYPE2 support not available
To add a missing option, make sure you have the required
library, and set the corresponding ROOT variable in the
setup.py script.

To check the build, run the selftest.py script.
running build_scripts

copying and adjusting Scripts/pildriver.py -> build/scripts-2.3

install PIL-1.1.5-source: running 
setup.py install " failed

It really did fail:  when I try PIL's selftest.py, it says,
	*** The _imaging C module is not installed

If it was just a matter of copying files, I would use sudo and do it 
myself - but I've searched that setup.py script and I can't even find 
in it where the copy commands are being issued!

I also tried downloading PIL separately and saying:
	sudo python setup.py install
which got farther but still doesn't pass the selftest check.
