There should've been a more helpful message associated with that.
In any case, it generally indicates a problem with PyExpat not being found,
which seems strange because even if Python was built without it, PyXML
would've installed it (wrapping Expat 1.95.7; PyXML isn't really maintained
Python's should be in your python lib-dynload dir, e.g. on my FreeBSD system
it's at /usr/local/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload/pyexpat.so.
PyXML's should be at site-packages/_xmlplus/parsers/pyexpat.so.

You should get something like
<xml.sax.expatreader.ExpatParser instance at 0x81c52ec>
It's possible there's some kind of conflict between PyXML and Python but
I'm guessing something else is wrong... unfortunately I'm not qualified
to diagnose it further...
