I can put a notice in the release notes, but I definitely won't change
it to work out of the box. If 2.4.4 compiled out of the box on this box,
it would have been a regression and would have to be fixed. IIUC, 2.4.4
won't compile on 10.5, either, and Python 2.4.5 will have no code to
port it to new platforms.
