You may have to disable more features and recompile everything until it
works. Have you removed the entire build directory before you recompiled
the package again?

   rm -r build && python2.5 setup.py build

The CMSG_* functions are used by the fd transer feature. Maybe solaris
doesn't support it, too? Please HAVE_FD_TRANSFER=0 and try it again.

pyprocessing was added to Python 2.6 and 3.0 under the new name
multiprocessing. The multiprocessing package contains several fixes and
minor API changes. I'm maintaining a backport to Python 2.4 and 2.5.

  multiprocessing is a back port of the Python 2.6/3.0
  multiprocessing package. The multiprocessing package itself
  is a renamed and updated version of R Oudkerk's pyprocessing
