I'm trying to get Python 2.2.2 installed on a solaris 8 SPARC system
and have run into a problem that I need some help resolving.  On this
system, I can successfully compile Python and the compiled version
passes all of the tests run by 'make test'.  However, when I do a
make install, there are quite a few modules that do not get copied
into /usr/local/lib/python2.2 including the socket and time modules;
more I'm sure, but my scripts fail on loading smtplib because those
two modules are not installed.

Any clues?
