Sorry for the delay -- I've been away on holiday, and then I took a few
more days holiday from Distutils hacking (or reading the sig, or
applying patches, or any of that stuff).
Anyways -- has this problem been resolved? Bastian posted a patch in
reply, but I wasn't clear if the patch was in any way related to your
problem -- it just looked like a silly little typo fix.
So are you still unable to install the Distutils? If the
lib/python1.5/config directory doesn't exist, the Distutils are useless.
