Back to the drawing board, I guess. This business of getting a message
that something is not installed when it *is* should *not* happen. I
consider this a nasty bug as the error is *meaningless*. The only thing
that comes to mind at the moment is something is looking
in /usr/lib/python and not /usr/lib/python2.4.
