I installed the Mac binary on my Intel 10.5.6 system and it works,

ActiveState 8.4.19 (which is in /Library/Frameworks where one would  

I just built python from source and that version does use ActiveState  

I wish I knew what's going on. Not being able to use the binary  
distros is a bit of a pain.

Just out of curiosity: which 3rd party Tcl/Tk did you have installed  
when you made the installer? Perhaps if it was 8.5 that would explain  
it. If so I may try updating my Tcl/Tk -- I've been wanting some of  
the bug fixes in 8.5 anyway.
