Python on Sun Cobalts?

I am trying to run an application (Zope) on a Sun Cobalt box that works just fine on Intel boxes, but when I run it on the damn MIPS box I get:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/matt/Zope-2.4.0-linux2-x86/", line 540, in ?
    import ZServer
  File "/home/matt/Zope-2.4.0-linux2-x86/ZServer/", line 87, in ?
    from medusa.test import max_sockets
  File "/home/matt/Zope-2.4.0-linux2-x86/ZServer/medusa/test/", li

    import socket
  File "/home/matt/Zope-2.4.0-linux2-x86/lib/python2.1/", line 47, in ?
AttributeError: 'os' module has no attribute '_get_exports_list'

This is python 2.1.1 built from source and zope 2.4.0 binary install.  Is there something peculiar about MIPS architecture that I will need to account for?
