Hi,

Running ./configure in the 2.6.4 sources produces the following error:

config.status: error: cannot find input file: Makefile.pre.in

Indeed, such a file is not contained anywhere in the Pakage. Also, I
found this note:

"The Unix build and install process is explained clearly in the README
file contained in the distribution"
(http://www.python.org/download/source/)

However, there isn't any README (or INSTALL) file contained in the
distribution.

sab at mach:/home/sab/Python-2.6.4> find . -name "README"
./Lib/lib2to3/tests/data/README
./Lib/distutils/README
./Lib/test/crashers/README

Any hints?

Thanks,
-Samuel
