Sorry, I have no experience with the the Enthought distribution.  You 
might ask over on the EPD-Users mailing list.  Depending on how that 
Python 2.5.4 was built and whether it has been patched to support 
building extensions on 10.6, you may need to use a different version of 
gcc (typically, export CC=/usr/bin/gcc-4.0) and/or add -arch i386 flags. 
Python 2.5 is rather old and only receives critical security bug fixes 
these days from the Python development team. 

PyObjC is also available as a MacPorts port if you care to use a 
complete MacPorts solution:
    sudo port install py25-pyobjc-cocoa
or sudo port install py26-pyobjc-cocoa.
