I can't answer the question about univeral binaries because I'm not
building it myself. As a software developer I can build our software
releases on the Solaris boxes but I have to ask one of the sysadmins to
install new software on there and the one tring to install Python for us
ran into problems.
Thanks for the comments - I will take a look at that patch and see if it
helps. However, from the sound of it I think the next step may be for me
to either sit with him or build it myself and then tell him what he needs
Whatever we end up doing I will try to post an update on here about how
we resolve this.
