The OS X 10.5 SDK has the Python 64 bit PPC framework. The 10.6 SDK does not; I guess because 10.6 is Intel only (although it does include the 32 bit Python version?). Anyhow, to get a universal shared library of boost.python that targets OS X 10.5 I ended up needing to pass these args to bjam:

   architecture=combined address-model=32_64 macosx-version=10.5 macosx-version-min=10.5

Then the only thing that was left was editing my user-config.jam to build boost.python against python version 2.5 instead of 2.6.

Sorry for the fire drill. Now I think I'm done talking to myself. :-)
