    hi,

I'm trying to make a local install of python 2.5 on AIX and I'm
getting some trouble with _curses.

Here is how I tried to compile it :


export BASE=/usr/local/python251

cd Python.2.5.1
./configure --prefix=${BASE}/\
    LDFLAGS="-L\${BASE}/lib/"\
    PPFLAGS="-I\${BASE}/include/"\

make
make test
make altinstall

and the compilation stop with the following pb :

ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: _unctrl
ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .__fixsfsi
ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .setsyx

Stop.

I've compiled ncurses-5.6 in ${BASE}/lib but this haven't solved the
pb.

Any clue ?

Best regards
