ok, I've read the mailing list and have compiled Python.app as
described. I saw the tail of the output, and planned to make such
modifications to the Perl compilation, but right now I'm having problems
getting Perl to compile at all under OS X. it's late, so I'll have
another go tomorrow, but I'm concerned that this may prove problematic.
the fact is, OS X comes with Perl 5.6.0, so few people perhaps will have
bothered to re-compile Perl. we'll see...
