Yes, this helped. I realized what I did wrong after getting the clue from you. I had unpacked the mmtk tar file in my home directory, then decided to place it with my python stuff, so unpacked it again there. When I did the 'make', I did it in the mmtk directory that was in my home hierarchy rather than the python hierarchy. My MMTKPATH was then pointing to a place where the c-modules were not installed. Oh well, all is well now. Thanks.
