I am trying to get Python 2.2.2 installed on a Solaris 8 (SPARC)
machine.  I have OpenSSL 0.9.7 installed successfully on the machine
in questions.  When compiling, this is a snip of the output:

X509_PUBKEY_get                     0x7d8      
X509_PUBKEY_get                     0x3a8      
ld: fatal: relocations remain against allocatable but non-writable

rypto -o build/lib.solaris-2.8-sun4u-2.2/
WARNING: building of extension "_socket" failed: command 'gcc' failed
with exit status 1

There does not seem to be much info here.  Is there any way I can get
more info as to solve the problem?
