I have not, and I don't intend to. I figure's build is not a 
macports one, and that it would be enough to have installed the Apple 
developer tools (Xcode + toolchain) and use that to build straight from 
the tarball. Have been doing that for ages, actually. I don't think I 
tried compiling a --enable-framework build before though, because that 
seems to be the only thing that's failing now.

Btw: just tried to compile Python 2.7.1 with --enable-framework, it 
compiled without error on the powerpc mac.
