MGLTools-1.5.0 installer includes Python 2.5 binaries and there is no need to
install Python 2.5.

I'd recommend to follow that procedure first. It did not work for me though. I'm
not sure if its because I was using OS X 10.5.2 and that procedure works for
10.5.0 only, or because I used X11 from Mac's website and not from the Mac's
installer CDs. In any case, coping /usr/X11R6 and
/Applications/Utilities/X11.app should suffice.

Use binary installer first. Building MGL Tools from source on Mac and Windows is
time consuming and challenging tasks.
