I don't know about the specific modules (I'm a Java guy who is a
beginner with Python), but you can get a precompiled version of python
1.5.2 for Solaris 2.6 (Intel and Sparc versions available, choose
carefully) all packaged up here:

The installation is trivial using the Sun package installer (pkgadd).
I'm using the Solaris 8 Intel version and it works perfectly for my
simple efforts so far. Good luck.
