env CFLAGS="-I/opt/local/include" LDFLAGS="-L/opt/local/lib" sh 
./configure --enable-framework --enable-shared --enable-readline


The configuration step completes successfully, and the build proceeds; 
however, the following error occurs:

gcc -L/opt/local/lib -u _PyMac_Error 
Python.framework/Versions/2.6/Python -o python.exe \
                Modules/python.o \
                -L. -lpython2.6 -ldl      

This appears to be a problem in the definition of the LINKFORSHARED 
variable in the Makefile, but I am not sure what the intended meaning of 
that variable is, so I'm not sure what the fix should be.

A complete make trace is attached.

Sorry, I managed to not copy the error message.  It is:

I am experiencing the same problem with 2.6.2, whether using parallel
make or not, but 2.6.1. builds just fine.

--enable-framework and --enable-shared are mutually exclusive options.  
See, for example, the discussion in Issue4472.  Use one or the other, not 

As a side comment, I think this error crops up often enough that it would 
make sense to add a check somewhere (configure?) and produce a useful

Aha, I did not realize that, though I suppose in retrospect it should have 
been obvious.  Removing "--enable-shared" from my build configuration does 
enable me to build with "--enable-framework" selected.

I agree that this should be either better documented, or checked for by 
the configurator.

Fixed in r73305 (trunk), r73306 (2.6) and r73307 (3.1) 

That is, with the above mentioned checkins configure will give a clear 
error message when you specify both --enable-framework and --enable-
