There's a fairly recent Apple technote that discusses how to build
universal binaries for products with a configure/make build
procedure, such as Python, and I hope to look at that next week. But
Ronald already discovered that distutils has problems with building
universal extensions, so that may also turn out to be a problem
(although he wants to build something more complicated, with the PPC
binary being 10.3/10.4 compatible).
And the "easy" way is to simply configure Python twice (Python builds
nicely in a different directory than the source, I'm doing that all
the time), once for ppc once for x86, and then using lipo to combine
