I suspect this is indeed a Python version issue:
It looks like the Macs have some kind of Python framework that
PL/Python is linking against even if a newer version of Python has
been installed. Unfortunately I don't have a Mac I could use to
do any deeper investigating.
The regression tests that are failing are from the patch I submitted
about a month ago to fix a core dump in PL/Python:
The tests exercise the error checking that the patch added, doing
things that previously caused a segmentation fault but that now
raise an exception. Should those tests remain in place? If so,
should we rewrite them to avoid the version-specific Python messages
(possibly by wrapping them in a PL/pgSQL function that traps the
errors), or should we just leave the tests alone now that we think
we understand what's happening?
