> I've put a new version of the setup.py script at
>      http://www.mems-exchange.org/software/files/python/setup.py
> (I'm at work and can't remember the password to get into
> www.amk.ca. :) )
> This version improves the detection of Tcl/Tk, handles the
> _curses_panel module, and doesn't do a chdir().  Same drill as before:
> just grab the script, drop it in the root of your Python source tree
> (2.0 or current CVS), run "./python setup.py build", and look at the
> modules it compiles.  I can try it on Linux, so I'm most interested in
> hearing reports for other Unix versions (*BSD, HP-UX, etc.)

Good work -- but I still can't run this inside a platform-specific
subdirectory.  Are you planning on supporting this?
