Phil finally gave me an excuse to beat lxml into submission . And this is the result: wxVenus on OS X.

lxml is a total nightmare to install on the Mac. For my own future sanity, this is how to do it. Install MacPorts Install libxml2: sudo port install libxml2 Install libxslt: sudo port install libxslt Make sure DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH includes /opt/local/lib (I am a unix n00b and just edit ~/.bash_profile to have the lines: DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/local/lib EXPORT DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH in it and restart the shell) Get the lxml code: svn co http://codespeak.net/svn/lxml/trunk lxml Install Easy_Install (surely you've done this already!) Install Cython: easy_install Cython==0.9.6.12 In the lxml folder run python setup.py build --with-xslt-config=/opt/local/bin/xslt-config Then python setup.py install Look puzzled when python test.py fails utterly Shrug that off quickly when lxml works generally This is for Tiger, it may work on other versions too.
