Hi All,
  I am getting follwoing error when compiling Python2.6 on mips 64.

"
Failed to find the necessary bits to build these modules:
_bsddb             _tkinter           bsddb185        
bz2                dl                 imageop         
readline           sunaudiodev        zlib            
To find the necessary bits, look in setup.py in detect_modules() for the module's name.

_ctypes            datetime           dbm

Python 2.6 is in a mode where only security issues get fixed. Please use Python 2.7 or Python 3.2.

Also understand that this output does not indicate an error. It just means that it couldn't build these modules. Python itself works just fine.
