Are you on Mac OS X 10.5 or are you on an earlier version? The error
message you're seeing indicates that MAC_OS_X_VERSION_10_5 is defined,
suggesting that you are on Mac OS X 10.5. But then it should be aware
of CTFontRef ... Did you change anything in your Python setup?

I get the same error on OS X 10.5.8, gcc 4.0.1, Python 2.5.4 downloaded
from The failing command is:

gcc -arch ppc -arch i386 -isysroot /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk -fno-strict-aliasing -Wno-long-double -no-cpp-precomp -mno-fused-madd -fno-common -dynamic -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -DPY_ARRAY_UNIQUE_SYMBOL=MPL_ARRAY_API -I/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/numpy/core/include -I/usr/local/include -I/usr/include -I. -I/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/numpy/core/include -Isrc -Iagg24/include -I. -I/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/include/python2.5 -c src/_macosx.m -o build/temp.macosx-10.3-i386-2.5/src/_macosx.o

Note the MacOSX10.4u.sdk in the isysroot and macosx-10.3 in the name of
the build directory. I suspect that this build of Python has been
compiled with some kind of compatibility settings to be usable on
earlier versions of the OS. Simply replacing 10.4 by 10.5 in the
isysroot option causes worse errors:

src/_macosx.m:1:25: error: Cocoa/Cocoa.h: No such file or directory
src/_macosx.m:2:53: error: ApplicationServices/ApplicationServices.h: No such file or directory

Can you suggest something further to try?
