Hi David, 
I agree fink makes it easy. But, I am trying to avoid fink , only because I want to stay with the bleeding edge subversion build. Not to mention the fact that my disk is always near to full and I can use every gig I can save.

Do you know about the fink builds of pymol?
http://pdb.finkproject.org/pdb/package.php/pymol-py26  .  You might
have more success modifying that package to pull the source from
