I downloaded the source for Mercurial 1.6. The build gave an error 
message that it couldn't find Python.h I downloaded Python 3.1.2 That 
put Python.h on the system, but it couldn't complete itself because it 
couldn't find things to make modules like _curses and readline Mercurial 
still can't find Python.h The OS is up to date, as far as the yum 
repository goes. I really just want Mercurial, so I can use it on the 
BrailleBlaster project. I think I announced that on this list a couple 
of weeks ago.
