Revision r63851 [1] by Benjamin Peterson removed a couple mac scripts, 
including Unfortunately, this script is still referenced in 
Mac/, so it fails to install on my mac. Anyone have a 
workaround I could add for packaging this up for macports?

I should add the error message:

../python.exe ./scripts/ -v 
../python.exe: can't open file './scripts/': [Errno 2] No 
such file or directory
make[1]: *** [installmacsubtree] Error 2
make: *** [frameworkinstallmaclib] Error 2

Also, I saw that someone else is having the same problem, so it's not 
just me:

If you just remove the reference to, do you still have
adverse effects?

Hello again,

I then have problems with it finding in the script:

../python.exe ./scripts/ \
		--destroot "/opt/local/var/macports/build/_Users_Shared_erickt_Projects_macports_dports.git_lang_python30/work/destroot"
		--python /opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.0/Resources/
		--output "/opt/local/var/macports/build/_Users_Shared_erickt_Projects_macports_dports.git_lang_python30/work/destroot/Applications/Python
3.0/Build" \
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./scripts/", line 14, in <module>
import MacOS
ImportError: No module named MacOS
make[1]: *** [install_BuildApplet] Error 1
make: *** [frameworkinstallapps] Error 2

Hmm. may have to go or some Mac modules may have to
reappear. I'm adding Ronald and Brett in to see if they have any
comments. Ronald, is it possible to have a Mac install w/o the
BuildApplet/cachesrc scripts?

Unassigning because I don't have time to work on this.

The call to could probably be just removed from the 
Makefiles, this is a script that works with MacOS resource files and if 
the Mac-specific modules have been removed those are all gone as well.

There's probably another issue though: the build procedure for 
uses some mac-specific modules as well. The easiest way to fix that is 
to recreate those modules in Mac/Tools (or another suitable directory) 
and not install them.

As I said, I don't have time to work on Python 3.0 issues at all.
