Actually it is messier yet. You cannot install xcode on Snow Leopard any longer. Since this is a foobar of great magnitude (and exists because the certificate Apple uses to install xcode has expired) one can hope that they will fix the error. MEANWHILE unless you have a working development system you can’t get one (at lease for snow leopard and when I tried to install snowleopard from the supplied DVDs)
