Again, thanks for your efforts. I'm trying your port but I get an 
error I don't understand

Error: bad value for PYTHON_VERSION: python2.3.
Legal values are:
   python2.2 (default).
*** Error code 1

Yet in the Makefile I see
USE_PYTHON=     2.3+

What does this error mean?

(I have two pythons on this box; one is a stackless Python and the 
other is "normal" Python 2.2; I only get the above error when I use 
stackless and stackless is admittedly not what I should be using. So 
I ask this question  more for my personal illumination and education).
