On Linux too -- if and when you can get it all downloaded from
sourceforge (this has proved to be a real problem for me -- I did
manage once on my own machine, but later failed twice on another
machine despite the latter having excellent net backbone access),
and with an annoying but apparently ineliminable warning about
double definition of _POSIX_C_SOURCE on just about each file that
does get compiled (it gets defined in both /usr/include/features.h and
/usr/local/include/python2.3/pyconfig.h), which, however, does seem
to be "benign" (quite annoying, but not really problematic).
