The build process on Leopard fails:

cd Mac && make altinstallunixtools DESTDIR=""
if [ ! -d "/usr/local/bin" ]; then  \
		/usr/bin/install -c -d -m 755 "/usr/local/bin" ;\
for fn in python2.6 pythonw2.6 idle2.6 \
		  pydoc2.6 python2.6-config) ;\
	do \
		ln -fs 
"/usr/local/bin/${fn}" ;\
/bin/sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `)'
/bin/sh: -c: line 0: `for fn in python2.6 pythonw2.6 idle2.6 	  
pydoc2.6 python2.6-config) ;do 	ln -fs 
"/usr/local/bin/${fn}" ;done'
make[1]: *** [altinstallunixtools] Error 2
make: *** [frameworkaltinstallunixtools] Error 2

To fix, remove the additional ) following -config on line 116 of 

                  pydoc$(VERSION) python$(VERSION)-config) 
smtpd$(VERSION).py ;\
