Python-3.0b1 build fails on Linux : _gestalt

P: n/a
Hi,

trying to build Python-3.0b1 on my Gentoo Linux box fails with

Failed to find the necessary bits to build these modules:
_gestalt

Looking at setup.py it seems that module '_gestalt'
is only needed on Darwin but my build on Linux fails
nevertheless.

Thanks for any hints,

Have you run the configure script?
This might happen if you have copied the directory from a machine with
Darwin/Mac OS X

Why do you think the build fails (i.e. what specific
error message makes you believe it failed)?

Your build has not failed. The _gestalt module just didn't build and
was marked as missing. Note this has been fixed on the trunk.
