    When I try to build and install python from source It configures and
    makes fine but upon 'make install' I always get to this
    point:



    Listing /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax ...
    Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax/__init__.py ...
    Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax/_exceptions.py ...
    Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax/expatreader.py ...
    Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax/handler.py ...
    Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax/saxutils.py ...
    Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax/xmlreader.py ...
    Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xmllib.py ...
    Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xmlrpclib.py ...
    Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/zipfile.py ...
    make: *** [libinstall] Error 1



    I am currently trying to install 2.5.1. I get the error no matter what the
    version is. Does anyone have an idea what may be causing this?

    I have gone through the config.log and found no errors concerning
    zipfile.py or zipfile or zip. I am thinking the error is the next command
    after the zipfile.py installation because I can go into
    /usr/local/lib/python2.5 and zipfile.py is installed.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Thanks

    I saw this (and reported this issue in SF's tracker) at some time around
    2.2/2.3 (just cann't recall). I don't know what causes this problem
    exactly, but in my case the installation succeeded if I removed prevoius
    python's library directory (/usr/lib/python2.x or
    /usr/local/lib/python2.x). The module that stopped installation was
    exactly the same.
