Presumably your MUA split
>/opt/local/bin/python -c 'from compileall import *;
It should be one line.

Your Python interpreter at /opt/local/bin/python doesn't seem to
recognize 'from'.

What happens if you interactively give the command


and then in response to the '>>>' prompt, type

from compileall import *

If you get an error, something is seriously wrong with your Python
