No idea, but maybe the error isn't there but slightly later on, to test
that theory...

change print to print >> sys.stderr, e.g.

-print "hello"
+print >> sys.stderr, "hello"
to ensure they get flushed immediately in case of some crash/exception
getting thrown.

If you simply change...
--if item.__class__.__name__ == 'Name':
--    g_exportedScripts.append(item.name)
to just
does that make a difference ?

What's the version of python in use on Mac ?, configure.in suggest 2.3 ?

What's the output of that
print "found g_exportedScripts %s" % (node.expr)
line ?

FWIW http://docs.python.org/library/compiler.html is the api being used here. All
the code wants to do is, if there is a g_exportedScripts in the .py,
get the list of names of methods assigned to that g_exportedScripts by
parsing the .py without actually executing the .py.
