I don't know how the stackless installer was build, but I do know that there are issues building the CPython installer on OSX 10.6 that can result in the problem you're seeing.  I'm very close to committing a fix for that to the CPython trunk and will port that to the other CPython branches. I expect that stackless will pick that up when they pull from the CPython repository again.
