However, the stock version of python does not work.  YOU WILL NEED TO
INSTALL PYTHON FROM ANOTHER SOURCE.  Below are several possible ways to
do this using macports, fink or homebrew.  YOU ONLY NEED TO FOLLOW ONE
SET OF INSTRUCTIONS ON THIS PAGE.  Just make sure you have a version of
python installed other than the mac default, and then make sure that it
is the one being used.
