[Mailman-Users] mailman install problem - Solaris

OK, for giggles, I updated python to 2.5 from 2.3.5, and now configure does this:

checking for group name "mailman"... Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "conftest.py", line 1, in <module>
    import grp
ImportError: ld.so.1: python: fatal: libgcc_s.so.1: open failed: No such file or directory
cat: cannot open conftest.out
configure: error:
***** No "mailman" group found!
***** Your system must have a "mailman" group defined
***** (usually in your /etc/group file).  Please see the INSTALL
***** file for details.
bash-3.00# cat /etc/group | grep mailman

I did a make distclean, a new configure, patched, verified that my $prefix/pythonlib/ dir had no korean dir (a japanese dir though) and then make and make install and this is where it breaks:

(a lot of listing and compiling, well after where it was breaking before and then )
Compiling /usr/local/mailman/Mailman/htmlformat.py ...
Compiling /usr/local/mailman/Mailman/i18n.py ...
Compiling /usr/local/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py ...
Compiling /usr/local/mailman/Mailman/versions.py ...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "bin/update", line 46, in ?
    import paths
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/paths.py", line 60, in ?
    import korean
ImportError: No module named korean
make: *** [update] Error 1

Could this be because I am using Python 2.3.5 or my python doesn't have the korean module?

I *think* the attached patch to misc/Makefile will solve the problem.

Here's the procedure:

After running 'configure' apply the attached patch to misc/Makefile.

Then if you have a pythonlib/korean directory in your installation
($prefix) directory left over from previous attempts, remove it.

Then 'make install' should give you a working installation.

This installed version of the Korean codecs will not have the compiled
C language modules, but if you aren't actually using Korean, the
Python modules will be good enough - the only difference is

Let us know how it works out.
