Doubt it. I build ReportLab from source on my Mac pretty much every day
-- as you say, it's pretty much UNIX.

Note that the OP is using some other flavor of Python -- it's 2.6, and
2.5 is what OS X 10.5 comes with. Looks like a third-party Python, not
the one that ships with the Mac. Maybe it's built wrong.
