Also note that the problem only occurs when trying to build a unix-Python 
out-of-the-box on MacOSX. If you're building a Carbon Python from the 
MacPython sources (something very few people can do right now:-) the 
executable isn't called "python". And when a real MacOSX-Python will be done 
it'll have all the nifty packaging stuff that will also make sure that there's 
nothing called "python" in the toplevel folder.

And the two workarounds (1-Use a UFS filesystem, 2-Put a ".exe" extension in 
the Makefile) work fine for the mean time.
