The problem here is that 0.0.1 is really old. There was a change in
the standard python mapping, so that the POA directories generated by
the omniidl IDL compiler changed from 'POA_blah' to 'blah__POA'. This
means that the autoconf installer is looking for created directories
by the wrong name.

Thing are correct in CVS, so the best bet is to upgrade to something more
recent. If 0.0.1 is really that old (I can't remember when it was put 
together, too much drinking I guess :-), than there have been a lot of 
changes and it would be worthwhile to upgrade, anyways.

Hope this helps,
