[Zope] Trouble getting Zope 2.8/Python 2.3 to work in OS X 10.6

I apologize if this questions belongs in a different forum, but...

I am having a heck of a time getting Python 2.3.5 installed in OS X  
10.6 (Snow Leopard server.) I need it for a Zope 2.8.6 installation.  
OS X comes with Python 2.6.1 and I guess my plan is to have 2.3  
installed alongside it.

Neither MacPorts (a framework for installing ports of various programs  
to os x) nor Fink (essentially a port of apt-get / dpkg for os x)  
worked. MacPorts didn't have a port of python2.3 and Fink wouldn't  

What I did to get it to the point where it is now:

configure with:

./configure --enable-framework MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.5 --with- 
universal-archs=all --enable-toolbox-glue=false

then run:

export LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8

next edit the resulting Makefile and remove the -Wno-long-double flag  
(it only appears once)

finally, running 'sudo make' yields the error:

libtool -o Python.framework/Versions/2.3/Python -dynamic -prebind - 
seg1addr 0x10000000 libpython2.3.a \
                 -framework System -lcc_dynamic -arch_only ppc  - 
install_name /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/Python - 
compatibility_version 2.3 -current_version 2.3
libtool: can't locate file for: -lcc_dynamic
libtool: file: -lcc_dynamic is not an object file (not allowed in a  
make: *** [Python.framework/Versions/2.3/Python] Error 1

I haven't been able to figure out that last error; commenting out the  
line it stems from breaks things, deleting just that particular flag  
(lcc_dynamic) breaks things, and googling didn't turn up any answers.

If this is an inappropriate questions for this list, I apologize...  
where should I post?
