I'm trying to package a little application for Solaris using the superb
McMillan Installer. However, though trivial scripts seem to work, any
attempt to import a module results in a bus error and core dump.

SunOS iris 5.8 Generic_108528-07 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-60
Python 1.5.2 (#1, Feb 19 2001, 01:03:53)  [GCC 2.95.2 19991024 (release)]
on sunos5
Installer 4a4 (though I get the same problem with previous versions)

bash-2.03$ cat itest.py
import string

print "Hello world\n"

bash-2.03$ python ../Installer/Standalone.py itest.py

Is this an installer issue, a zlib issue, a Solaris issue, or user
stupidity? Any help appreciated.
