I'm attempting an install of mailman 2.0.13 on AIX 5.1.  I'm using gcc, openssl, and python  I'm getting the error
below when running a configure.  I checked to make sure all libraries
listed in the error are there and permissions are fine.  I'm by no means a
python guru.  Any assistance with this would be GREATLY appreciated.
Here's the configure...

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

and here's the output....
