Dear Brian,

I am not sure this will be of much help, but just in case. I use
Debian, and I compiled from the sources (didn't even check if there
was a deb). Just the usual configure and make. Nothing else. Note: I
did NOT do the install step. Just the make. It went smoothly for both
the 2.5 and 2.4 versions. After the make, if I ever wanted, I'd create
links (e.g., python2.4-s). This allows me to keep the "stackfull" and
the "stackless" versions around.
