I'm having some problems with it. The Synopsis-0.4.1 version doesn't
compile std headers right:

c++ -shared -I.. -DPYTHON_INCLUDE="<python2.2/Python.h>" -Wall -o
../../../ -L/usr/lib/python2.2/config -lpython2.2 -ldl
-lpthread In function `void <unnamed>::dump_links()': `ostream_iterator' undeclared in namespace `std' parse error before `>' token

I downloaded the cvs version, but you need to set the PYTHONPATH
environment variable before it works; yet, that's not documented in the
README. Also, the install doesn't install all the required modules.
I think maybe changing the definition of make macro, SRC to:

SRC := $(basename $(wildcard *.py))

in several of the Makefiles would help.

David, do you have a corrected version of the code that other
boosters could use to avoid others stumbling over these problems?
