New submission from Steffen Daode Nurpmeso <sdaoden at googlemail.com>:

Hello Mac OS X gurus, multiprocessing/__init__py. searches for
sysctl(8) via os.popen(), which will fail since the moist fruits
provide sysctl(8) in /usr/sbin!
The applied patch multiproc_sysctl.patch uses an absolute path.
(This may be better anyway, what do you think of that???)
