Python2.7 not recognising SUNW_1.23 on S10_u7

Hi everyone, 

 I'm trying to install python2.7 on solaris 10 u7 SPARC, but failing miserably. python2.7: fatal: version `SUNW_1.22.5' not found (required by file /opt/csw/bin/python2.7) python2.7: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory
This system's C library was upgraded from SUNW_1.22.4 to 1.23, skipping the intermediate versions. 
I understand that the *minimum* libc version supported is SUNW_1.22.2. Then why is version 1.23 not recognised during installation? 
Is there a solution or a workaround?
Best Regards,
