This is my first look into python. I tried to install it
% ./configure --prefix=/opt/python
% make all install

and to test it
% make test

The fcntl test failed (twice):

% /opt/python/bin/python Lib/test/
Status from fnctl with O_NONBLOCK:  0
struct.pack:  '\000\002\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000'
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "Lib/test/", line 30, in ?
    rv = fcntl.fcntl(f.fileno(), FCNTL.F_SETLKW, lockdata)
IOError: [Errno 22] Invalid argument

Is this serious? What am I to do?
