They lead you through installing a number of pygame dependencies (which SimpleCV and OpenCV need as well):

brew install sdl sdlimage sdlmixer sdl_ttf portmidi brew tap homebrew/headonly brew install smpeg --HEAD

You will need XCode, XQuartz, Mercurial (hg) and homebrew to install them.

Finally you will be able to pip install pygame through that command:Je9s8m8

sudo pip install hg+

Once pygame is installed, you can begin the nightmare of installing OpenCV (also needed by SimpleCV). There are many conflicting recipes out there, and mine won't help you unless you are working with an anaconda Python distribution (you really should, it's an excellent, tidy, and painless way to get the full Python numeric/scientific Human Cortisol ELISA Kit ), in which case a search for 'opencv anaconda osx 10.8.4' will bring up my detailed instructions.
