I'm confused.

Python 2.3.5 is the version of Python that ships with OS X 10.4, and
it's installed in /usr/bin. It should not be removed because various
system components depend on it. If you've somehow removed that, you may
want to reinstall the OS.

I'm not aware of a widely-distributed version of Python 2.3.5 that
installs in /usr/local/bin. The most recent versions in widespread
distribution are 2.4.1 and 2.4.3, just released as a "universal binary"
build.  Look at http://macpython.org/packages for download links.

So where did your 2.3.5 build come from? Did you build it yourself? If
so, it should be pretty easy to rebuild.
