I'm sorry, the 0.9.7beta Mac Python binary for a while contained the
same bug as the sources there, as explained in a previous message to
this list. I have placed a fixed Mac Python there around 30 August,
so if you fetched it before that date you should fetch a fresh copy
and try again. (Note that the new file isn't compacted with stuffit.
I could fix it but I only occasionally have access to a Mac where I
can compile Python these days...)

Not really -- there probably should be... Here's an excerpt from the
config file I used:
#define STDWIN 1
/* Standard modules */
/* Mac-specific modules */
Note that the modules 'sys' and 'builtin' as well as '__main__' are
always present (see the Library reference manual for a description of
BTW, for documented modules it is of course trivial to test whether
they exist or not:
print 'foo exists'
print 'foo does not exist'
