I'm done checking in bugfixes into 2.1.1. I went through all checkins since
release21 (using some evil python & shell scriptery to get it in the first
place) and caught a few more, today. However, I see two bugs on SF that still
bug me, and I'd like to see fixed:

  [ #425007 ] Python 2.1 installs shared libs with mode 0700

  [ #230075 ] dbmmodule build fails on Debian GNU/Linux unstable (Sid)

Both of these are distutils-build related, and I'm not sure on the 'right'
fix on either. The latter also applies to 'bsddb', by the way, and is
especially annoying to me, because I'm running Debian on more and more
machines :) Does anyone who understands setup.py have time to look at these
before a week from friday, when 2.1.1-final is scheduled ?
