Hi All,

I have a project based on Zope3 which requires to have Python 2.3.4 on my 
Mac (OS X 10.3.6). The machine has the
default Apple provided Python installed. I had tried several times but 
never managed to get it work, and after reading all available information
on how to install Python on Mac, I am still not able to do it.

I issued the ./configure command (even tried with ./configure 
--with-suffix=.exe --with-dyld). At the middle I had received
the following message (the one marked with ##)

checking locale.h presence... yes
checking for locale.h... yes
checking ncurses.h usability... no
checking ncurses.h presence... yes
configure: WARNING: ncurses.h: present but cannot be compiled
configure: WARNING: ncurses.h: check for missing prerequisite headers?
configure: WARNING: ncurses.h: proceeding with the preprocessor's result
configure: WARNING:     ## ------------------------------------ ##

configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Makefile.pre
config.status: creating Modules/Setup.config
config.status: creating pyconfig.h
config.status: pyconfig.h is unchanged
creating Setup
creating Setup.local
creating Makefile 

The ./configure ended with no special error message. 

After issuing the make command, I had received the following message 
(actually repeated several times)

cc1: warning: changing search order for system directory 
cc1: warning:   as it has already been specified as a non-system directory 


Then issued the "make clean", followed by "make" again .... and received

Objects/fileobject.c: In function `file_tell':
Objects/fileobject.c:668: warning: implicit declaration of function 
Objects/fileobject.c: In function `get_line':
Objects/fileobject.c:1134: warning: implicit declaration of function 
Objects/fileobject.c:1169: warning: implicit declaration of function 
warning: `cdecl' attribute directive ignored
warning: `cdecl' attribute directive ignored

I would really appreciate if someone can tell me what I did wrong or what 
can be the problem.

Thanks alot,

Zsolt Putnoky
