It is a package/port system which is a mix between Debian packages and 
BSD ports- it allows to quickly install unix software on OSX. My aim is 
to provide a package for stackless, so that more people can use it 
without having trouble compiling and patching it.

Ok, I will try it - thanks :)

I attached the patch file. It seems like MacOS 10.2 has a few changes 
in the underlying Unix (aka. Darwin, a FreeBSD-like), which made some 
modules not work anymore. It will be probably fixed in a future Python 
realease (I hope ;)
