The 10.4 SDK support option was removed in Xcode 4, along with gcc 4.0 support necessary for building numpy and others. Xcode 3 installs Apple's gcc 4.0, but Xcode 4 installs only 4.2. The easiest solution I've found is to start clean by removing Xcode 4, install Xcode 3 (which is free), and then upgrade back to Xcode 4. Then you will have both the required gcc 4.0 and 4.2.
Sorry for duplicates, I forgot to cc the list at first.
