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....
