Okay, and where are the files installed when you do "make install"? For
me it looks like

copying build/lib/zenmapCore/ScanProfileConf.py -> /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/zenmapCore
copying build/lib/zenmapCore/NmapCommand.py -> /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/zenmapCore
copying build/lib/zenmapCore/ServiceList.py -> /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/zenmapCore
copying build/lib/zenmapCore/DiffHtml.py -> /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/zenmapCore
copying build/lib/zenmapCore/__init__.py -> /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/zenmapCore

so they are installed in /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages, which is also
in my sys.path. An import error would be caused if where they are
installed is not in sys.path.

Interesting.  It would appear that zenmap is NOT installed by default on 
MacOS with a 'make install.' Instead I have to descend into the zenmap 
subdir and 'python setup.py install.'

At that point, it uh... doesn't appear to do anything.

singularity:~ jay$ zenmap
singularity:~ jay$ zenmap -h
Usage: zenmap [options] [result files]

  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
                        Specify a scan result file in Nmap XML Output or 
                        Scan Result file. Can be used more than once to
                        specify several scan result files.
  -n, --nmap            Run Nmap with the specified args.
  -p PROFILE, --profile=PROFILE
                        Begin with the specified profile selected. If 
                        with the -t (--target) option, automatically run the
                        profile against the specified target.
  -t TARGET, --target=TARGET
                        Specify a target to be used along with other 
                        If specified alone, open with the target field 
                        with the specified target
  -v, --verbose         Increase verbosity of the output. May be used more
                        than once to get even more verbosity

How exactly SHOULD this work?  It may be the error's entirely on my end...
