It may make your life generally easier to note that I've built a
meta-package that includes all of twisted and zope, and pycrypto, and
pyopenssl built for MacPython 2.4.  I don't know what you may have
messed up during the install (perhaps you used /usr/bin/python (which
should point to 2.3) for the install.)  But people seem pretty happy
with my packages.
