[Scribus] Build fails on sparc solaris 9

In this case, the failure looks like it's because Scribus needs Python
2.3 or newer to support the Python scripting interface, and you have
2.2. If you pass --without-python to configure, it'll disable the Python
interface, so you might want to do that. If you really need scripting
support, I suggest upgrading to Python 2.3 or 2.4 .

Any chance you can file a bug on http://bugs.scribus.net/, and attach
your config.log (the one from this build failure)? Old Python versions
really need to be detected and skipped.

As for Solaris builds in general, I built Scribus on Solaris 10/x86 a
while ago - I don't remember if it was 1.2.x or 1.3.x . It is expected
to build, though, and build failures should be considered bugs.

Once the OpenSolaris team get the Solaris/Xen port up to speed I hope to
start doing regular Solaris 10 builds.
