I'm looking to use Python and the Pyserial (pyserial.sf.net) module to communicate with the serial port on the gumstix.  I've used PHP, Perl and other languages and much prefer Python.

I had some problems building it on Mac OS X, so I downloaded Ubuntu linux and going to give it a try over the weekend.

I just updated the perl makefile recently to fix a couple issues.
Actually, the biggest issue seems to be that while building its .pm
files and stuff, perl in cross-compile mode seems to be picking up
the local host's native perl installation, so you apprarently can
only build for cross-compile the same version as the one you have
installed; at least with the makefiles the way that they are now.
