With the release of Xcode 4.3 for OS X 10.7, Apple has moved the location of the OS X SDKs from their long-time path of /Developer to within the new bundle itself.  This breaks the building of extension modules with any of Distutils or packaging/Distutils2 when Python was built as as universal build with an SDK in the former location, as is the case with the installers.

A workaround is to either leave the old /Developer directory in place when upgrading to Xcode 4.3 or to install a symlink to the new location:

sudo ln -s /Applications/ /Developer
