running build_scripts
creating build/scripts-2.3
copying and adjusting scripts/veusz -> build/scripts-2.3
copying and adjusting scripts/veusz_listen -> build/scripts-2.3
changing mode of build/scripts-2.3/veusz from 664 to 775
changing mode of build/scripts-2.3/veusz_listen from 664 to 775
installing to build/bdist.linux-x86_64/dumb
running install
error: invalid Python installation: unable to open 
/usr/lib/python2.3/config/Makefile (No such file or directory)
