Could be, but at least two posts on this and the main python board  
said that python builds out of the box

to Quote
"You'll have to build it yourself. That's not very hard, extract the
tar archive and run:

    cd Python-2.4.2
    ./configure --enable-framework
    sudo make install

Anyway I restored my old 2.4.1 installation  and then did a
sudo makeframework install and that worked and preserved my old  
installed packages.

Thats what I get for taking the message boards to literally.
