Hmmm, I think I must have been a few revs behind.  When I svn up'd to  
HEAD and tried again it built and loaded.

Here's my setup:
Python 2.5
OS X (10.4.8) Intel

example built from latest pyobjc svn.

"No lesson seems to be so deeply inculcated by experience of life as  
that you should never trust experts.  If you believe doctors, nothing  
is wholesome; if you believe theologians, nothing is innocent; if you  
believe soldiers, nothing is safe."

         --Lord Salisbury, 19th century British prime minister
