Ok, the updated SCons files help a lot. I turned off all the options 
(international, gameengine, openal, fmod, quicktime) but I'm still 
getting errors when it seems it's linking:

gcc -framework Carbon -framework AGL ... (blah blah blah)
ld: can't locate file for: -lpython2.3
scons: *** [blender] Error 1
scons: building terminated because of errors.

OS X 10.3 comes with Python 2.3 pre-installed, in:

Judging by the python_libpath line, I believe the directory that SCons 
is looking for is:

However inside this directory, the only file that seems not to be a 
source file or some sort of makefile is 'python.o' and I don't think 
that's what's needed.

Fink installs python in /sw/lib/python2.2 (/config) , which is what I 
presume the NaN makefiles are using. In the config directory I can see 
other nice files such as libpython2.2.a and libpython2.2.dylib .

Manually setting python_lib = 'python2.2' and manually setting 
python_libpath = '/sw/lib/python2.2/config' makes this error go away.

However, when I compile now, it gives me a similar error:

ld: can't locate file for: -lpng

libpng is installed with Fink in /sw/lib . I tried appending '/sw/lib' 
in platform_libpath and compiled again, but this time it gave me the 

ld: /usr/lib/crt1.o illegal reference to symbol: __objcInit defined in 
indirectly referenced dynamic library /usr/lib/libobjc.A.dylib

And that's as far as I've got up until now :)

Hope this helps anyway
