    I am very new to Python. I installed Python in Windows and learning
    it. But i need to install Python on Solaris 8 to automate few things
    as my build environment is on Solaris. When i tried to download python
    2.5 source code and tried to compile i got the error saying
    "configure: error: cannot compute sizeof (int), 77".

    Between i am also getting parse errors for few files including
    siginfo.h

    /usr/include/sys/siginfo.h:74: parse error before `pthread_attr_t'
    /usr/include/sys/siginfo.h:76: parse error before `}'
