FWIW, lxml builds and runs just fine using easy_install on my PPC with 
the latest universal build pythonmac 2.5.1 on 10.4.9.  One obvious 
difference apparent from your log file: on my system lxml is linking 
with the Apple-supplied libxml2, libxslt, and libexslt in /usr/lib/, not 
whatever you have in /opt/local/lib (presumably libs installed by port?).
