Arghh, this doesn't help. Modules/posixmodule.o gets build with weak  
linking enabled, but the creation of $(BUILDPYTHON) ignores the  
MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET setting in the Makefile and you must once  
again set it while running make.

It must be an off night for me, it's quite obvious why this doesn't  
work: make variables are not the same as environment variables.  GNU  
make has a feature to export variables to the environment, but the  
toplevel makefile should only contain portable code. Oh well, you win  
some an you loose some.

But not unless I find a way to use the value that configure  
calculated in the makefile.
