	installed /usr/pkgsrc/lang/python22-pth... this installs without
curses support.  Installed /usr/pkgsrc/devel/py-curses, but curses.panel
module isn't built there.  Curses and curses.panel appear to be part of
the base install -- would it be possible to enable them in the original
python22-pth build?

Just FYI, this causes a bunch of curses-based python scripts to fail
(BitTorrent being one of them).

install python as described above, then invoke python and try to
import curses.panel.

Build curses.panel support into either python22 or py-curses.
