I'm venturing away from my J2EE cave for a bit to explore Python and Zope.

I've compiled and installed Python 2.2.1 on my Linux box.  I'm trying to
compile Zope 2.5.1.  I get the following error:

[root@hebe Zope-2.5.1-src]# python wo_pcgi.py

Deleting '.pyc' and '.pyo' files recursively under

Is this "Makefile.pre.in" something that used to be in this directory on
older versions of Python?
