Well, I would absolutely love it with the ability to install the PIL (and have tried for the last 4 days, with no clear solution). However, when I tried to install the PIL from macports, and the associated python2.6, it worked perfectly. Therefore, I would like to mix the mac python with the macports PIL. I just can't figure out how to do this for the life of me. Is there a way?

Install the port, set PYTHONPATH and cross your fingers.
