I just installed active python, and I get this error:

% python
ActivePython 2.4.3 Build 11 (ActiveState Software Inc.) based on
Python 2.4.3 (#1, Apr  3 2006, 18:34:02) [C] on sunos5

 >>> import curses
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
   File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/curses/", line 15, in ?
     from _curses import *
ImportError: No module named _curses

Any ideas why?  I have libncurses 5.2 on my machine.
