Re: [Gtk-osx-users] Building gtk-osx on Lion -- no python?

Ah, thanks, John.  Building it now.

For some reason, Python was automatically built for me when I last built my environment (under 10.6) using the following:

jhbuild bootstrap --ignore-system
jhbuild build

And when .jhbuildrc-custom defined modules as follows:

modules = [ "meta-gtk-osx-bootstrap", "meta-gtk-osx-core", "meta-gtk-osx-python", "librsvg", "meta-gtk-osx-themes", "gtk-quartz-engine" ]

Was python previously a hard dependency of meta-gtk-osx-python or bootstrap, where it is not now?

Firstly, I've pulled in MacOS10.5.sdk and gcc-4.0 from Xcode 3.2.6, and set the appropriate environment variables for CC and CXX.  However, jhbuild does not seem to build a python, even though I've set _gtk_osx_use_jhbuild_python = True, and included meta-gtk-osx-python in my modules array.

> Python is specified as a soft dependency of pygtk, affording the option of building against the installed Python. To build Python, specify it in your list of modules.... and for building Gnucash, there's no need to build meta-gtk-osx-python unless you're going to write GUI elements in Python, so you can just say "jhbuild build python gnucash".
> Yes, MACOS_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET is set by setup_sdk based on the "target" parameter. Python2.7 is new to Lion, so it's built with a target of 10.7; you might try building against Python2.6, but I suspect that its target is 10.6. Leopard shipped with Python2.5, which Lion doesn't include. (Interestingly, Lion also doesn't include Python3. I guess Apple decided that not enough people were using it yet and they needed to keep the download size under control.)
