Thanks for the quick response. :)
I'll see what trouble I can stir up on that side of the fence and will
report back. :)

Previously, I had tried giving the real filenames to the inline install,
and it didn't work. After creating the symlinks, the behavior remained
unchanged (including a make clean; make; make install of
Inline::Python). :/ As far as I know, I used the standard MacPython
package to install, and I don't believe that I chose anything but
standard/default options. Are there other libraries that need to be
pulled in along with libpython? Some -lfoo I need to specify?
I feel like I'm missing something obvious, but I'm a relative OSX
newbie, and am not really familiar with the spin OSX puts on things
targeted for Linux (not that I'm a Linux guru either).
Thanks again for your help,
