ImportError: No module named string
The 'import string' in setup.py actually seems to be redundant now, since nothing seems to actually refer to the string module. I've removed it from CVS.
The QNX node number prefix '//5' (machine or host number, equivalent to a 'hostname:' prefix for network paths) is being reduced somehow (path normalization?) to '/5', so paths don't resolve. 2 slashes ('//') are required at the head of the path. Is this something that can be fixed?
Ooh, very likely:
Isn't // at the root a Unix convention of some sort for some network filesystems? Probably normpath() should just leave it alone.
QNX doesn't have an 'ld' command. Is configure not getting its info to setup.py? (Is it supposed to?)
setup.py should be parsing the Makefile. The old QNX instructions say Modules/Makefile should be edited, but with Neil's non-recursive Makefile patch (committed after alpha1's release), editing Modules/Makefile will have no effect. Try editing just the top-level Makefile, which should affect setup.py.
