Built-in exception class not found

	I am attempting to install Python on our systems here at RIT. 
We're running Solaris 7.  It seems to work in most respects, but whenever
any program is run, it displays the following message: 

Built-in exception class not found: EnvironmentError.  Library mismatch? 
[Warning!  Falling back to string-based exceptions 
[Python 1.5.2 (#4, Jan 14 2000, 09:18:57)  [GCC 2.95.1 19990816 (release)]
[on sunos5 
[Copyright 1991-1995 Stichting Mathematisch Centrum, Amsterdam

	I looked through the Setup file in the Modules part of the
installation and couldn't find any modules related to this.  I also
checked the FAQ and the Bug report but couldn't find any similar problems.
Has anyone encountered this or a similar problem before?  (As I am not a
python user myself, please respond to me via e-mail -- I don't normally
read this newsgroup:)
