No, and there's no trace on them being compiled, as happens with
2.6. Note also that reportlab-2.7.tar.gz is 1.7Mb, while
reportlab-2.6.tar.gz is over 2.0Mb.

I even tried to compile the daily_rl_accel.tgz, but

a) the "make" way of compiling it fails with::

$ make
gcc -pthread -fPIC -DNDEBUG -g -fwrapv -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -I/tmp/pp/include/python2.7 -I/tmp/pp/include/python2.7 @DEFS@ -c ././_rl_accel.c -o ./_rl_accel.o
gcc: error: @DEFS@: File o directory non esistente
make: *** [_rl_accel.o] Error 1

b) its README.extensions mentions the usual "setup.py" script which
isn't included

I guess the same :-)
