Hi,

Almost all of the Galaxy development team uses Macs, so it should certainly 
work.  The problems with eggs, as you have both found, typically come with 
using non-standard versions of Python.  Your best bet is to use the version 
that shipped with your version of OS X, which can be found in 
/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework.  You can ensure that this version 
is always used by putting it first on $PATH or setting up a virtualenv with it, 
e.g.:

  % virtualenv 
--python=/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin/python 
genv

--nate
