Ronald, thanks for your response.
Well, since easy_install pulled down and built the package on this
machine (a very slick and easy install indeed!) I see no need to have
PPC binaries on it, since I would use that same install process on a

So I found setup.py and sections that build native code INSIDE the
distributed tarball. I see how this would work, but this makes the
slick and easy install not so easy.
