Does anyone know how to fix this or where ./configure or the linker
picks up the path to Leopard's built-in Python?

I can not find where the wrong path comes from either. The path
returned by the Python snippet in the ./configure points to the
correct Python location (/opt/local/...) and yet the library gets
linked against the system Python. Here is the path returned by Python:

>>> print sys.prefix

Perhaps we should file a ticket for this bug (especially if we do not
solve it right away), but what port should it be filed against?
Python, SWIG or every individual port which has problems with
SWIG-generated Python bindings?
