[mod_python] With OS X and Python 2.4 - installed but not working

I ended up dropping my grand plans of installing everything in an 
out-of-the-way location. I installed Python 2.4 as a framework its 
default install dir under /Library. It went pretty smoothly. A readline 
hack is no longer necessary, for example.

Nor was this ;)  Once I had python in a 'normal' location, mod_python 
built with nothing more than a --with-apxs. And my server string is 
showing Python/2.4 now instead of Python/2.3, so it probably was a 
problem mixing frameworks.

Lesson learned: do things they way you're supposed to. Hey, it's OS X. 
What did I expect? ;)
