[vtkusers] Python2.4 universal build not compatible with building OSX VTK CVS intel or universal

Hi All OSX VTK folks,

It seems that python2.4 universal build does not play well with the  
current CVS VTK
for building on an intel mac, intel only code or universal binary.
Compile fails with many unresolved symbols in both
i386 and ppc code with gcc and intel compiler icc/ipcp at the linking  
stage building the Graphics library.

When I tried building with the system python2.3 there were no errors  
in the build
(despite the fact that it might not run properly due to errors caused  
by bug3059
http://www.vtk.org/Bug/bug.php?op=show&bugid=3059 )

i will try to get more information from gcc on the build failure and  
file a bug report.

So best stick to python2.3 for now, even though its not universal....
