The error message is not bad: the problem is "not finding "".

Have you installed it? Have you configured "ld.conf" to find it
where you installed it or set up "LD_LIBRARY_PATH" correspondingly.

If this turns out to be the problem, then the way "" is build
could be improved. Under Solaris, it is possible to tell a shared
object at link time where to look for another shared object at runtime.
In this case, I (at your place) would file a bug Python report.
