I just joined the list but am not sure I should have :-).  I really just
want to get distutils working on our HP/UX 10.20 host so I can install

Using the 0.1.2 release, all the tests fail, basically because "from
sysconfig import AR" fails.  Where should that come from?  It appears it
should be in the config.h set up when I built Python, but I can't find it.

The 2000-1-17 snapshot doesn't install.  Here is the error (wrapped to
make mailers happy):

line 26
    self. = None
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
