I suggest one of two options:

1) Use the python.org python, and the binary recently posted to this list.

2) use macports to compile the dependencies:

a) install macports
b) $ sudo port install libjpeg
c) $ sudo port install lcms
d) $ sudo port install freetype

e) python setup.py build
f) python setup.pyu install
