There are two recent reports of build failures of Python 3.0 on OS X 
10.5.5: see

http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-list/2008-November/514159.html

and

http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-3000/2008-December/015404.html

It seems likely that these are related.  For both reports the build 
eventually fails with something like:

gcc  Python.framework/Versions/3.0/Python -o python.exe \
			Modules/python.o \
			 -ldl
make: *** [sharedmods] Error 1

I can reproduce this in the py3k branch and release30-maint branch on my 
Macbook by doing (at a Terminal prompt):

export LC_CTYPE="UTF-8"
./configure && make

I'll try to find time to look at this; any and all help welcomed!
