[Pythonmac-SIG] [py2app] problems running .app built on 10.5 on standard 10.4

hi there,

probably a silly question, but i'm having trouble producing an .app of
a python script which will run on a bog standard tiger system. the mac
i'm building the .app on is running 10.5 and only has the default
apple python 2.5.

the error the person running 10.4 sees is:

A Python runtime could be located.  You may need to install a
framework build of Python, or edit the PyRuntimeLocations array in
this application's Info.plist file.

(should that be "A Python runtime could not..." ?)

are my problems down to the fact that i'm using apple's python 2.5 to
build the .app? does this force it into using the semi-standalone
option? (certainly appears to) if so, any advice on how to proceed?
