Install python-sao

Python-sao is an interface for communicating with DS9 via Python.

Installing with STSCI_PYTHON is done as follows:

cd /tmp/
svn checkout python-sao
cd python-sao-read-only/
## Need gcc-4.0 with STSCI_PYTHON Python2.5.4
## Otherwise dies with the error below
setenv CC gcc-4.0

## XPA
tar xf xpa-2.1.12.tar.gz
ln -s xpa-2.1.12 xpalib
cd xpalib
./configure CFLAGS="-arch ppc -arch i386 -arch x86_64"
cd ..

python build
## if build dies, do this last one by hand
gcc-4.0 -I/usr/stsci/pyssg/Python-2.5.4/include -L/usr/stsci/pyssg/Python-2.5.4/lib -O -fPIC -bundle -undefined dynamic_lookup build/temp.macosx-10.3-i386-2.5/xpa.o -L./xpalib -lxpa -o build/lib.macosx-10.3-i386-2.5/pysao/

sudo python install

This is the error you get if you don’t set CC=gcc-4.0:

building 'pysao.xpa' extension
