Hi guys,
I am trying to compile python 2.5 on my OSX machine so it includes the
bsddb module.  Currently, when I type 'import bsddb' I get the
following traceback:

in <module>()
     49         from bsddb3.dbutils import DeadlockWrap as _DeadlockWrap
     50     else:
---> 51         import _bsddb
     52         from bsddb.dbutils import DeadlockWrap as _DeadlockWrap
     53 except ImportError:

<type 'exceptions.ImportError'>: No module named _bsddb

I have the db3 and db4 packages installed from macports.  What else
must I do to get this working?
