I think this means "No such file or directory". The reason for this 
error is that you (a) didn't run "make install" to install the python 
front-end or (b) if you don't want to install the front-end but just run 
it from the build directory, you need to set the PATH variable to 
include "."

Hope this helps,

P.s. By using LC_ALL, you should be able to get English error messages ...
