Hi Gian - You are probable encountering the PYTHON issue many of us OSX users 
have had as well.  If you do "grep PYTHON CMakeCache.txt" in the top-level 
build directory, you should see included the following variables, set to 


These 3 variables need to refer to the same Python install.  For example, I'm 
using Python 2.7 from MacPorts set specifically, and so I get back:


If yours do not match up, then you can change that behavior by setting them on 
the cmake command line; for example, what I use is (watching wrap):

cmake .. -DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=/opt/local/bin/python 

If this doesn't help, then email me off-list and I'll help you debug the issue.
