The bz2 module isn't compiling for me on Solaris 8:

    building 'bz2' extension
    gcc -g -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -fPIC -I. -I/export/home/python/dist/src/./Include -I/usr/local/include -I/export/home/python/dist/src/Include -I/export/home/python/dist/src -c /export/home/python/dist/src/Modules/bz2module.c -o build/temp.solaris-2.8-sun4u-2.3/bz2module.o
    cc1: warning: changing search order for system directory "/usr/local/include"
    cc1: warning:   as it has already been specified as a non-system directory
    /export/home/python/dist/src/Modules/bz2module.c: In function `Util_CatchBZ2Error':
    /export/home/python/dist/src/Modules/bz2module.c:120: `BZ_CONFIG_ERROR' undeclared (first use in this function)
    /export/home/python/dist/src/Modules/bz2module.c:120: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once

This particular machine has a /usr/include/bzlib.h file with a copyright
date of 1998.  There are several other BZ_*_ERROR defines, but not
BZ_CONFIG_ERROR.  Adding a conditional define for that macro isn't
sufficient to get it to compile.  I get lots of "structure has no ..."

    Modules/bz2module.c:1521: structure has no member named `total_out_hi32'
    Modules/bz2module.c:1521: structure has no member named `total_out_lo32'

Perhaps this version of bz2 lib is too old to use with Gustavo's module?
