Thanks.  I use MacPorts, rather than Fink.

Your tip got me looking farther around my hard drive, and I found  I don't know why I couldn't find it using the find command
or the Finder searchbox.  But I have found it, and I got a successful
completion of py2app.

The .app that was built was called, not

I did

cd dist

and then


I got an error window:

LilyPond Error
An unexpected error has occurred during execution of the main script

ImportError:  No module named PyObjCTools

I hunted up PyObjCTools on Google, and found that it's supposed to be
included in the OS distribution.  I guess it is, but the OS distribution
includes Python 2.3, and this needs 2.4 or newer, so I went to 2.5.

In hunting around for PyObjCTools, I found that PyObjCTools 2.0 is used for
MacOS 10.5, while version 1.4 is used for 10.3.9 and 10.4.

I'm not sure how to install PyObjCTools on my system; it doesn't work with
easy_setup, and I'm not familiar with doing the python installation.

Any help would be appreciated.
