When installing Python 2.3.4 under Mac OS X 10.3.6 (Darwin 7.6.0) I 
get the following error:

running build
running build_ext
dyld: ./python.exe multiple definitions of symbol _BC
/usr/local/lib/libreadline.5.0.dylib( definition of _BC
/usr/lib/libncurses.5.dylib(lib_termcap.o) definition of _BC
make: *** [sharedmods] Error 133

Note: as the output states I have readline 5.0 installed.

Hum.  Is it possible to write a simple C program that links to both 
readline and ncurses in your setup?  From the error messages I 
would guess not, but that may be too easy.

PS: haven't had the courage to go near readline 5 yet :)

Try configuring like this:

env MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.3 ./configure --enable-

Can this be closed now?

I interpret 3 years of silence as yes, Raymond :)
