all I have done was fallowing the instrucions on
it all worked fine without giving any errors. even the selftest.py gave no
exept that it detected that there is no jpeg lib which I have not
installed. if the runtime lib is the file python24.a it should be linked
against the same lib, because thats the lib I have created fallowing the

thanks for any help
