interesting.  i also heard this:

"You need to un-define _XOPEN_SOURCE and _POSIX_C_SOURCE in order to 
successfully compile python sources on Tiger. Also, you need to use a 
build of Python that was configured on Tiger (either our 2.3 port or a 
2.4.1 configured on Tiger)."

I'm trying 2.4.1 out now.  What a bummer.  Thanks!
