Yeah, so this is Solaris. Oracle dismantled the packages system to get
folks to upgrade or buy a support contract. I can't even run 'pkg
update' without errors because Oracle deleted their signing keys.

I did try to build Python from sources about a year ago. I had some
had trouble (but don't recall what it was). Then I learned Solaris
wasn't really a supported platform for Python. They were not really
interested in testing the platform and fixing the problems.
