Actually, I twigged the problem earlier this morning.  You are correct
the errors simply indicate that it could not connect to the build
master.  Having corrected the configuration file (I am embarassed) I
found that I have two Python installations, one via MacPorts, the other
being the MacPython install and I had not correctly installed buildbot
into both. Now fixed.

Buildbot itself is now working fine on my Mac OS X machine :-)  However
Subversion is not (dyld: Library not
loaded: /opt/local/lib/libkrb5.17.dylib :-( but that is a problem for a
different list.

Sorry to have unnecessarily worried people about the Mac OS X version of

The Solaris 10 version however is a different story, but I think I
already emailed about this:
