Look at the misc/Makefile in the unpack directory. It should have


near the top just preceding


If there is an assignment to EMAILPKG, e.g.


then look at the config.log from configure for something like

configure:1938: checking Python's email package
configure:1971: result: ok

If the result is "not ok", then for some reason configure either wasn't
able to import email from Python or it thought the imported version
was less than 2.5.8.

If the assignment to EMAILPKG in misc/Makefile is null, then for some
reason, 'make install' failed to remove the directory from pythonlib.
The command to do that is in the install-packages: target.
