[XML-SIG] PyXML and Mac OS 10.3.8

Indeed, I thought the ADT installed by default on Macs. Apparently not.

So installed ADT and fine. Well, fine after realising Apple fumbled
bundle1.o in /usr/lib (Jaguar installed, Panther doesn't - so if ADT is a
Jaguar ADT or early Panther version then no bundle1.o so no compile so no
PyXML). Anyway all sorted now, PyXML is there, all is well. Thanks everyone.
