At some point this is going to be enough of an issue for me to track down all dependencies and install a vanilla python 2.4.x. I have compiled the python tarball many times before so I'm the obvious candidate.

Initial timeline: PreBeta?.

    33This is a major irritation.  A blog entry [http://blogs.activestate.com/kevinw/2006/02/no_readline_in_.html here] says it isn't part of ActivePython and a mailing list post [http://mail.python.org/pipermail/pythonmac-sig/2005-November/015411.html here] explains that it's a licencing issue (ActivePython isn't GPL).  The latter also suggests just dropping readline.so from another Python build into your PYTHONPATH.

    5 Try to resolve this issue without messing with ActivePython's defaults. 
     5Make a new Python 2.4 installation on glue to replace ActivePython.  This installation will contain all NDG dependency packages.
