Building a MacPython distribution

The ```` script creates MacPython distributions, including
sleepycat db4, sqlite3 and readline support.  It builds a complete 
framework-based Python out-of-tree, installs it in a funny place with 
$DESTROOT, massages that installation to remove .pyc files and such, creates 
an Installer package from the installation plus other files in ``resources`` 
and ``scripts`` and placed that on a ``.dmg`` disk image.

Here are the steps you ned to follow to build a MacPython installer:

- Run ``./``. Optionally you can pass a number of arguments
  to specify locations of various files. Please see the top of
  ```` for its usage.
- When done the script will tell you where the DMG image is.

The script needs to be run on Mac OS X 10.4 with Xcode 2.2 or later and
the 10.4u SDK.

When all is done, announcements can be posted to at least the following
