Hopefully I un-HTMLized the mail :)
OK, because you want to build with AIX and Python 2.2.1, I'd suggest
tinkering with the setup.py file. I get terribly confused by distutils,
but I have had people report success with it :)
Anyway, what you want is
python setup.py build
python setup.py install
and you should be in good shape! I *think* its architecture agnostic
enough such that you can build it on AIX without having to do much more
than change the linker flags to be non-gcc versions (the current linker
flags just try to embed the path to the Oracle libraries in the
executable so you don't have to export LD_LIBRARY_PATH).
