Have you just tried building Python 2.4 directly instead of using Fink?
  If I recall correctly, it should just build from source with no
problems. Unfortunately, the Mac OS X python layout is goofy (and
changed from 10.2 to 10.3) so the 2.4 build will probably install into
/usr/local but you're no worse off there than if it's in /sw.
