Just managed to compile python3 on debian lenny
I get (among other things)

7 skips unexpected on linux2:
    test_dbm_ndbm test_bz2 test_ttk_guionly test_tcl test_tk
    test_ttk_textonly test_dbm_gnu
Any ideas what dev packages I need to add?

Also emacs python-mode is not set for python3 it looks I get the foll when I
try to load a file into python in emacs

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
NameError: name 'execfile' is not defined
