Alternatively, if you install MacPorts installing binary packages are as  
easy as:

sudo port install py27-pil

or, even better once you have virtualenv installed:

virtualenv-2.7 --no-site-packages mypythonfolder
cd mypythonfolder
bin/pip install pillow

For most Python users I'd suggest MacPorts is the way to go because it  
handles necessary libraries and allows for uninstalling. Caveat is that  
 from Snow Leopard on the builds are generally x86_64 only.
