I've got Python 2.6 installed with MacPorts (MacOS X 10.5),
thus the framework is in /opt/local/Library/Frameworks.

CMake always finds system Python (FIND_PACKAGE(PythonLibs)).

I have already tried hacking CMakeFindFrameworks in order to add /opt/ 
local/Library/Framework to
the searched paths. However, at the end PYTHON_INCLUDE_PATH is always

What is the best way to have my own Python version detected?

What is the rule cmake uses to choose the Python installation to use?

Thanks in advance,
