OK - that gets python2.5 and libffi4, too.

I guess you mean "python2.5 setup.py install"

"python2.5 setup.py  build" works, but I get things like
   qemu: Unsupported syscall: 0
   qemu: uncaught target signal 11 (Segmentation fault) - exiting
   qemu: uncaught target signal 4 (Illegal instruction) - exiting
   error: command '/usr/bin/python2.5' failed with exit status 252
when I do "python2.5 setup.py install".
Tt seems to fail after a certain time, so by re-running the script
multiple times, eventually it finishes.
Would rebuilding quemu fix this problem, too ?
