I'm running mailman 2.1.9 chrooted. Recently FreeBSD switched from Python2.4
to Python2.5 as default. As an effect mailman won't start anymore using

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/mailmanctl", line 107, in <module>
    from Mailman import Utils
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/Utils.py", line 32, in <module>
    import sha
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.5/sha.py", line 6, in <module>
    from hashlib import sha1 as sha
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.5/hashlib.py", line 133, in <module>
    md5 = __get_builtin_constructor('md5')
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.5/hashlib.py", line 60, in
    import _md5
ImportError: No module named _md5

What did I miss? I suspect that some additional files need to be copied to
the jail but which ones? Using Python2.4 mailman still works fine.

Thanks, Helmut
