Building python2.5 extensions under MacPorts

I have a Python 2.5.2 port that builds just fine with PyQt4.

I also have one that builds quad-architecture universal (with quad- 
architecture Qt4).

I've only tested it on Leopard, and I'm working on it now with another  
Mac, and testing Tiger as well.

I'll post the port to this list later tonight.
