Yes, I believe virtualenv already does that (or symlinks to it). Python 3.2 changed the path to config and include directories for some reason, viz.

$ ls -d /opt/ActivePython-3.*/lib/python3.?/*config*/


$ ls -d /opt/ActivePython-3.*/include/python3.?*

It is possible that virtualenv is hardcoding the relative path to 'config' (and 'include') directories and thus failing to find the new 'config-3.2m' dir. If that is the case, this is not a problem with Python.

Although msg129372 does point to a Python bug, it may or may not be related to the virtualenv issue noted earlier. Given that virtualenv doesn't officially Python 3 and virtualenv5 is more of a hack, I haven't investigated into this much.

Does that answer your question?
