hi, everyone:
     I want to compile python 3.3 with bz2 support on RedHat 5.5 but fail to do that. Here is how I do it:
     1. download bzip2 and compile it(make、make -f Makefile_libbz2_so、make install)
     2.chang to python 3.3 source directory : ./configure --with-bz2=/usr/local/include
     3. make
     4. make install
     after installation complete, I test it:
     [root at localhost Python-3.3.0]# python3 -c "import bz2"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.3/", line 21, in <module>
    from _bz2 import BZ2Compressor, BZ2Decompressor
ImportError: No module named '_bz2'

 By the way, RedHat 5.5 has a built-in python 2.4.3. Would it be a problem?
