    I am getting an error while building python-2.5.1 on a freebsd 6.1 machine as a
    normal user

    ../configure --prefix=/home/me/mypython --enable-unicode=ucs2

    seems to work fine, but make install fails whilst running

    Compiling
    /home/my/mypython/lib/python2.5/test/test_module.py ...
    Compiling /home/me/mypython/lib/python2.5/test/test_multibytecodec.py ...
    Sorry: UnicodeError: ("\\N escapes not supported (can't load unicodedata module)",)
    Compiling /home/me/mypython/lib/python2.5/test/test_multibytecodec_support.py ...

    I see there was a bug reported about this
    http://www.mail-archive.com//msg09544.html

    but I didn't really understand what the resolution was. I do not have any
    special PYTHONHOME or PYTHONPATH set. The install partially works and I have a
    running python without the unicodedata module. Looking in Modules I don't see
    any unicodedata.o so I guess it's not being built for some reason.
