I install for multiple architectures by first unpacking the tar file into a read-only directory, then symlinking the files into a shadow tree, via X11 'lndir'. Worked fine on Python 1.*. With 2.0, however, the files Include/graminit.h and Parser/graminit.c are supplied in the tar file, and also generated by the build process. Of course, they cannot be copied into their respective directories, because the files they are overwriting are in a read-only volume.

Note that these files are not generated on all platforms; if you remove them, you'll break all non-Unix builds.

I think this is a "don't do that" problem -- although that isn't the very satisfying. The files need to be supplied in the source distribution since the non-Unix build processes cannot rebuild them, and removing the rules to build them would impose a substantial burden on the developers working on the grammar. I'm closing this as a bug report and adding an entry to the Feature Request PEP.
