Unable to build libpython2.5.so on OS X 10.4

Hi all. I'm trying to build some internal code that needs to link
against libpython2.5.so on a OS X 10.4 (Tiger) machine. It seems that
no matter what combination of options and environment variables I give
to the configure script from python 2.5.1, all I get is the
libpython2.5.a (the static library). I've googled the problem and
searched the comp.lang.python archives, but I have been unable to find
anything that works.

Is there some special magic I have to invoke to do this? I've not done
any Mac development, so there may be some obvious point I am missing.
The Python README file and configure script comments are not getting
me very far.
