it wasn't really that easy... globus and friends took a very long
time, but the media tools were the only ones that needed some help to
even compile (before i knew of mash binary for OS X, which even then
still is pretty funky)
if your on 10.3 you already have Python 2.3, and can just install the
extras then install wxPython from the binary (nice lil' .pkg) and all
you need to do is get the rest of the requirements  ready, gpt then
globus, then swig then pyGlobus etc.

I also tried wrapping AG in a .app but it behaves different and
breaks... can't connect... weird
