I'm not running macports or fink, or anything similar. The Python I
used to build it was the 1.5 binary release of PyPy, which I'd figure
would be fine.

My main goal right now is to dig into the PyPy internals a little, try
to learn something about how it all works. I spoke with Alex Gaynor on
Twitter a bit, and he said that I can do that just by running the PyPy
tests, no need to do a full translation. So I think for now I'll just
forget about trying to get the translation working on my system, and
start playing with the tests.
