Dear VMD experts.
I need to have python available in VMD, and I wonder how one can get it..

It says in the manual , that it should be already available,
however, when I run vmd -python or say "gopython" inside vmd,
it tells me "Sorry, this version of VMD was compiled with Python support

I have tried three versions, all installed from downloaded binaries
LINUXIA64, version 1.8.6 (April 6, 2007)
LINUX, version 1.8.7a23 (April 23, 2008)
WIN32, version 1.8.6 (April 7, 2007)
but none of them works.

Thanks a lot in advance for any suggestions,
