BuildSnapshot.py calls BuildPythonModules.py which builds SOAPpy-0.11.4 with
the equivalent of the following sequence of events happening, you could try
to reproduce it on the command-line to see if there is a problem with
building SOAPpy:

  cd SOAPpy-0.11.4
  python setup.py clean --all
  python setup.py build
  python setup.py install --prefix=../dist-20050914/lib/python2.4/site-packages --no-compile

Note: the files are put in a 'lib' dir instead of a 'lib64' dir, so the
AccessGrid RPM spec file recitifies it latter by doing the following:
  mv lib/python%{pyver}/site-packages/* usr/lib64/python%{pyver}/site-packages

Also make sure you have all the gpt, globus-accessgrid, wxpython/wxGTK x86_64
RPMs installed and not just the i386/i586 versions.

The x86-64 mods in the AccessGrid.spec.in file were the ones I used for x86-64
Fedora Core 3. I no longer have access to any PC running x86-64 linux at the
