I figured out how to do a Python-agnostic build of Qgis on Leopard.
What this means is that the Leopard build can use either the system
Python 2.5 OR the python.org Python 2.5. The python.org Python will
override the system Python (standard system search path).
Note: it is still made for Python 2.5. I don't know if/how Qgis tests
or restricts for Python versions, so there may be problems if Python
2.6 is installed. But this is normal and expected anyways - only
point versions should be expected to be compatible for compiled modules.
I didn't change the Tiger Qgis build because there is no point in
using the system Python (2.3).
