vim-app (and vim) with +python fails on Leopard

Ya - it looks like #15099 - I did see -framework python (or something
similar) when I was building last night.  I needed the manual -lpython.  

:py print sys.version on 10.5.4 shows a build of 2.5.1 from Jan 17, 2008
while the one on 10.5.1 shows python 2.5.2 built last night.  

On 10.5.1, :py print sys.executable show
/Applications/MacPorts/ while the one on 10.5.4
shows /usr/bin/python.  (These were both fresh MacPort and vim +python
installs.)  sys.prefix on 10.5.1 is at
/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5 while on 10.5.4
is at /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5.

So it seems that while it builds fine on 10.5.4, it's linking to the Apple
provided python25 rather than the one from MacPorts.  I don't know if that
is what is desired.
