I managed to get it working on Solaris, though I had some problems with
readline and socket-with-ssl -- presumably because distutils tried to link
against static libraries, not shared ones. However, I just noticed
SourceForge has a compilefarm that includes Solaris 8. I compiled Python
2.1.1 and it worked fine.
