I decided to build the simple embedding demo in Demo/embed/.  After
fixing the Makefile (checkins coming), I ended up with one problem:
the 'import site.py' failed error.  When using -v I get this traceback:

'import site' failed; traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.0/site.py", line 146, in ?
LookupError: no codec search functions registered: can't find encoding

Is there some part of the initialization that I'm forgetting?
