Hello everyone,

Thanks for you help in advance!

I am trying to compile mailman on a SUN Sparc Solaris 7 system.  I've created 
the mailman user and group, also created the destination dir 
(/usr/local/mailman) and changed permissions as described in INSTALL:

% chmod a+rx,g+ws .
% ls -ld .
drwxrwsr-x   2 mailman  mailman      512 Jan 25 19:04 .

I now try:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mailman --with-cgi-gid=nobody \

The command fails at:

=== CUT HERE ===

checking for --with-username... mailman
checking for mailman UID... Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "conftest.py", line 1, in ?
    import pwd, string
ImportError: ld.so.1: /usr/local/bin/python: fatal: libgcc_s.so.1: open 
failed: No such file or directory
cat: cannot open conftest.out

configure: error:
***** No "mailman" user found!
***** Your system must have a "mailman" user defined
***** (usually in your /etc/passwd file).  Please see the INSTALL
***** file for details.

Seems like some library problem with python.  I have installed binaries of 
version 2.1.1:

% python
Python 2.1.1 (#1, Aug 25 2001, 04:37:28)
[GCC 3.0.1] on sunos5
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
