I posted this message on Sunday morning, and it hasn't appared as
of Monday, 11:57 est. I am guessing that the original email
with the full output of the error message was too large for this
mailing list, so I have resent it with most of the error message
cut out. 

I apologize if this is a duplicate message.

I downloaded 4Suite 0.12.2a2 and moved it to my /usr/local/src
folder. I untarred it. I ran

# python setup.py build

I included the error messages below.

I am a newbie to python, so I can't really see any reason to try
to make an alpa version of software work. I think I'll uninstall
pythone 2.1, and then install 2.1. Then I'll install 4Suite 0.11.

Any reason why I shouldn't do this?
