Strange. Does the generated Makefile contain a target for the bz2 dynamic lib?

Then your python doesn't have the bz2 module.

I don't think this will help.

Not that I could remember but I'll have to check on Monday to be sure.

This was from the python source dir? Are there any build results anywhere?

The following is the dynamic library that implements the bz2 functionality. If
you don't have this, it won't work.

And this from the python install dir I guess, so it doesn't exactly make sense
to compare those. Just to make sure, you did "make install" after making the
python distro?

Not really, sorry. Need more input. ;-)

You're welcome!
