wild osx build problem

Ok, so I just upgraded my server to 10.3. Fresh clean install.

I have installed Python24 via fink. This seems to be my core error in

I was trying to compile subversion and was getting a strange build
failure when the python bindings were compiled.

After diff'ing config.log on the machine where I have manually
installed Python 2.4 and the same build script worked just fine, I
deduced that for some reason the environment variable
MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET is not set (="10.3").

This causes Python to traceback when configure tries to run the
build/get-py-info.py script (which svn's build should stop if that
happens!!!). This in turn does not set the ac_cv_python_compile
variable and the build fails.

The solution is to set the MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET variable before
trying to build svn if you have installed Python24 via fink.

The reason why I'm installing svn manually and not via fink is because
the fink package has some stupid dependency on some random version of
Python (along with a bazillion other packages it doesn't need to depend
on) and I really didn't want to have a total of 3 copies of Python on
my machine.

What a headache.
