Well for starters, if it uses any C code, you'll only be able to use it
with python 2.4, which is what all py-* ports (as opposed to py25-*,
py26-*, etc.) are built against. So run python2.4 from macports, or
another python2.4 and set PYTHONPATH as per the python docs.

Presumably it should be possible to make a version of this port for
newer python versions too.
