From Mac/

ifneq ($(LIPO_32BIT_FLAGS),)
        lipo $(LIPO_32BIT_FLAGS) -output $(DESTDIR)$(prefix)/bin/python$(VERSION)-32 pythonw
        lipo $(LIPO_32BIT_FLAGS) -output $(DESTDIR)$(prefix)/bin/pythonw$(VERSION)-32 pythonw
        ln -sf python$(VERSION)-32 "$(DESTDIR)$(prefix)/bin/python-32"
        ln -sf pythonw$(VERSION)-32 "$(DESTDIR)$(prefix)/bin/pythonw-32"

Shouldn't the last word in the first line be `python` instead of `pythonw`?

Specifically "python$(VERSION)-32 python" instead of "python$(VERSION)-32 pythonw"?

There is no typo. The python and pythonw executables are the same and are build as 'pythonw' and installed with the right name.
