Can you do me a favor and compile Python 2.6.1 on your machine? The
download link is http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.6.1/

I like to know if the multiprocessing module in 2.6.1 builds correctly
on Solaris. I also need the version number of GCC (gcc -v) and the value
of sys.platform (python -c "import sys; print sys.platform").


I'm including Jesse, the maintainer of Python 2.6's multiprocessing
module, in our discussion. It seem like Solaris needs
HAVE_FD_TRANSFER=0, HAVE_SEM_TIMEDWAIT = 0 in order to compile
