[Pythonmac-SIG] Embedding Python in applications under MacOSX and Darwin.

I am wondering if someone can answer this question for me.  Is Python 
installed as a framework under Darwin?  If so, is there an easy way to 
know within a "configure" script (autoconf, libtool, et al) whether you 
are in MacOSX or Darwin?  I do not run Darwin, just MacOSX.  The reason 
that I ask this is that there are several programs that embed python 
within the Darwinports system and I would like to develop a common 
routine that would allow a "configure" script to properly compile and 
link against the Python Framework in MacOSX yet work in Darwin as well. 
  I have not looked at a lot of ports, but the ones that I have looked 
at don't get it right and I am too new to the libtool system to provide 
a proper response.  So any information or pointers are greatly 

Thanks, Bob.
