Not sure I understand what packages you mean and how it is not picking em

Do the Stackless unit tests pass for you?  What about the Python regression
tests?  If these both pass, then I cannot tell you why this generic python
build step fails.  I expect it to be something related to your local
system.  If you can debug it and do some verbose output to see why it
fails, feel free to post that to the list.

Whether it is, is beyond the scope of Stackless.  This is a general Python
problem, how to install two versions of the same interpreter and have them
share the same lib directories.  Yes, it is possible.  No, unfortunately I
do not know how offhand.  But keep in mind that Stackless has modified and
extra lib files.  You would have to deal with that, all in all,
