Sorry, quite right, I should have tried this earlier.

Works fine on Ubuntu.  Fails dismally on Solaris.  Actually works if I
use python2.3 on Solaris so the SFW install work, it is just the SMC
install that doesn't.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.5/md5.py", line 6, in <module>
    from hashlib import md5
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.5/hashlib.py", line 133, in <module>
    md5 = __get_builtin_constructor('md5')
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.5/hashlib.py", line 60, in
    import _md5
ImportError: No module named _md5

Is the _md5 module supposed to be statically compiled into the Python
interpreter rather than being a shared library? 

I re-read your earlier email:

so hunted around for '*md5*.so*'.  On Ubuntu I get:

|> locate '*md5*.so*'

So there appears to be no shared library for Python 2.5, yet md5 import
works fine.  On Solaris 10 I get a long list, I removed all the entries
from /platform:
