Yes, I have:

% file python
python: ELF N32 MSB mips-4 dynamic executable (not stripped) MIPS - version 1

Thanks for your response.  I'm not very familiar with python source
code, but I'll see if I can't narrow down the problem before I send it

But, if there's a python developer out there with an SGI system and
