Nope, seems to be working as I originally thought:

gcc test.c -framework Python

(compatibility version 2.5.0, current version 2.5.0)
         /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0,  
current version 88.3.10)

gcc test.c -F/opt/local/Library/Frameworks -framework Python

Python (compatibility version 2.4.0, current version 2.4.0)
         /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0,  
current version 88.3.10)

So the -F flag is for adding to the framework paths.
