      I just pulled the latest MacVim (7.3.1020) on my Tiger PPC box. It builds! Thanks for the fix.

      I also scanned the old config.log from when it wouldn't build, and I can find no indication that 2.3.x was being picked up. Everything mentioned either /Library/frameworks/python.framework/blah-blah-2.7-blah, or said "-framework Python". The latter is also what config.log says on the working versions and on other archs too.
