I'm trying to install the Python Imaging Library on a MacBook running 10.6 Snow Leopard. I haven't yet found a precompiled binary for OS X, so I need to compile it from source, which means I need gcc.
Thing is, though, it's not my computer (it belongs to the school at which I teach), and Xcode is no longer free. If I go the route of getting gcc through installing Xcode, then either I have to join the Apple Developer Program or purchase Xcode through the Mac App Store (using my own account, no less). Neither option is particularly attractive.
So I guess I have two questions:
- Is there a precompiled PIL binary for 10.6 out there?
- Is there another way to go about getting gcc for free?
