To follow up, Ned diagnosed this for me off-list. The cause was my recent
upgrade to Mavericks, which causes the Xcode 5 command line tools to be
installed differently. In case others have the same issue, the solution was
to run:

xcode-select --install

(and accept the dialog box it pops up). This is a common issue with
Mavericks and open-source projects (not just Python); Ned will add
something to the README.
