FWIIW, on my Solaris 10 (Opteron) machine, there are no import
subprocess errors, not with Python 2.4.3 nor with Python 2.5.

PS) Python 2.4.3 is the ActivePython Solaris build 11 from
ActivState.  Python 2.5 was built from source using SUN compilers, not
GNU.  There is an ActivePython Solaris build for 2.5.1 but I have not
tried that one yet.  See <http://www.activestate.com/store/
