To build fuse-python with OSXFUSE run the following commands:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
sudo touch /usr/include/osreldate.h

and finally:

python build

After fuse-python has been built sucessfully the file /usr/include/osreldate.h can be removed:
sudo rm /usr/include/osreldate.h

This (osreldate.h) is a known issue and will be fixed in a future version of OSXFUSE.

It should work fine without the "MacFUSE compatibility layer" installed but it does not hurt either :-)
