 FWIW, python 2.0 compiles fairly easily on Solaris with a working gcc
environment. Last time I did it, editing Modules/Setup (or some other like
file) and running 'configure' with the normal options. Pretty straight
forward. Not a package, I know, but easy enough to do. Running at 178
compiled free/gnu packages here at work and python was nowhere the more
difficult of these packages to mangle.
