I believe this is due to a change in packaging/BuildPythonModules.py, in
which the value of the flavor argument when building pyGlobus for linux
has recently changed from 'gcc32pthr' to 'gcc32dbgpthr' (at line 71).

Reverting to
  flavor = 'gcc32pthr'
allows a build to complete and allows the post installation script
AccessGrid-Postinstall.py to complete without error. It also allows
certmgr.py to run again, so I suspect it will allow VenueClient to run
again too (all of these previously had the same run time error about
lack of pyGlobus), but I'm currently not anywhere I can test that till
tomorrow morning.

Still, I guess there was some reason to change flavor's value from
'gcc32pthr' to 'gcc32dbgpthr', which a reversion won't help.
