Joe, I'll try this on my home machine in the next couple of days.
Last weekend I installed the 1057 enthon install and our proava svn
converge branch. While basic python was fine, anything that used swig
failed to build. Something about unable to find a definition for
PyCObject or something like that. I didn't trace down the problem.
I'll let you know how it goes....
