I was able to download, compile, and install v3.8 on OS X (10.4) without much trouble. but when I try to run, it fails with the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./gnofract4d", line 28, in <module>
from fract4d import fractal, fractmain, options
File "/local/gnofract4d-3.8/fract4d/fractmain.py", line 3, in <module>

self.compiler_name = prefs.get("compiler","name")
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'get'
the same thing happens run from the installed copy and the local. I'm somewhat conversant with python, and I'll be glad to try to fix this, but can someone point me in a direction before I go mucking about in the source code?
