Comment (by habnabit at gmail.com):

 pyobjc 1.4 is buildable on Leopard. It's just a little tricky, and I
 haven't been able to figure out what to patch to make it work without some
 really nasty hacking.

 Here's how:
 1. download pyobjc-1.4 and unpack it.
 2. download this file into the pyobjc-1.4 directory:
 3. $ sudo python setup.py install
 4. wait until right after the line about running a code generator script;
 right when the C modules are starting to be built, and then press ^Z to
 suspend the process.
 5. $ sudo rm -rf build/codegen
 6. $ tar xjvf codegen.tbz2
 7. $ fg

 This will build pyobjc 1.4 and install it. I haven't figured out how to
 avoid the part where it runs the code generator script, though.
