Python on Mac OS X doesn't have gdbm

First off I know I can install the latest python from Fink quite
easily and it'll give me everything needed. But I'm trying to
distribute my python app to end users who don't really care (or know)
anything about Fink.

The default Python on Mac OS X is 2.3 but doesn't come with gdbm. Did
anyone try to get the source of gdbm and build it, and somehow built
the gdbm module for Python on Mac OS X? If so could you share a few
hints? It'll save me lots of time trying.
