New submission from Ronald Oussoren <ronaldoussoren at mac.com>:

It would be nice if it were possible to install a framework installation from source without also installing files into /Applications.

This could be done by adding an option to configure --without-macosx-applications.

The primairy usecase for this is development: I have a rather large set of Python frameworks on my machine with different build options and all of those install a copy of of IDLE and other application bundles into /Applications.
