You did not tell which system you have. It looks like you have no intel
machine? There was ppc mentioned in the logs.
I use the pyinstaller right now.
Current installers seem to use the
RPATH feature which was introduced with 10.5.
After using homebrew for Python, I needed to build my own and had to
learn this the hard way:
When I'm building Python on Mountain Lion, I set something
like export MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.6 or higher. That is crucial.
Maybe it helps
