[Mailman-Users] Installation problem

I have not been able to install Mailman, and I'm hoping someone out there
may be able to offer some helpful advice.
Configuration: I'm on a Sun workstation with Solaris 8, and running NIS. I
have created a user called mailman, and a group called mailman. The
mailman user is listed in the local passwd file, i.e. /etc/passwd/. The
mailman home directory is /usersm/mailman, and it is owned by user
mailman. The setgid bit is set on this directory. I am logged in as user
mailman when I try to run the installation.
The problem is that when I run ./configure --prefix=/usersm/mailman, it
fails with the following error messages:
checking for --with-username... mailman
checking for mailman UID... Traceback (most recent call last):
File "conftest.py", line 1, in ?
import pwd, string
ImportError: No module named pwd
cat: cannot open conftest.out
***** No "mailman" user found!
***** Your system must have a "mailman" user defined
This is puzzling because I most definitely do have a mailman user
defined. Can anyone help me figure out what the problem is here? Thanks
