Hey people. 

So, I managed to configure, build and test with no problems, but when
I try a make install, I get this

[wmerh11c-pegdig-Python-2.1.1]$ gmake install Creating directory
/home/pegdig/temp/mike/Python-2.1.1/install-sh python
/SRMS/utils/python2.1.1/bin/python2.1 if test -f; then
\ /home/pegdig/temp/mike/Python-2.1.1/install-sh -m 644 /SRMS/utils/python2.1.1/lib; \ else true; \ fi if test
-f ""; then \ /home/pegdig/temp/mike/Python-2.1.1/install-sh -m 555
/SRMS/utils/python2.1.1/bin; \ else true; \ fi
mkdir ./Lib/plat-hp-uxB
cp ./Lib/plat-generic/regen ./Lib/plat-hp-uxB/regen
export PATH; PATH="`pwd`:$PATH"; \
export PYTHONPATH; PYTHONPATH="`pwd`/Lib"; \
export EXE; EXE=""; \
cd ./Lib/plat-hp-uxB; ./regen
python$EXE ../../Tools/scripts/ /usr/include/fcntl.h
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "../../Tools/scripts/", line 24, in ?
    import sys, regex, regsub, string, getopt, os
  File "/home/pegdig/temp/mike/Python-2.1.1/Lib/", line 13, in ?
    import warnings
  File "/home/pegdig/temp/mike/Python-2.1.1/Lib/", line 143
    print >>sys.stderr, "Invalid -W option ignored:", msg
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Any idea what's wrong?
