With the current (Oct 2) CVS versions of PyXML and Python (2), running "python setup.py install" produces the following glitch: copies all the relevant files to /usr/local/lib/python2.0/site-packages/_xmlplus and then tries to compile them all. Unfortunatley, it tries to byte-compile sgmlop.so, leading to the traceback below. Is this a PyXML mis-setup of setup.py or a distutils (Python core version) bug?
D'ohh! That's a Distutils bug, introduced last night. Just checked in a fix -- thanks for the quick report!
BTW, it doesn't matter if you follow the Python CVS or the Distutils CVS, you'll get my latest code either way.
