I'm getting the same problem trying to install django.

jython 5.5b0+ (trunk, Dec 9 2008, 16:54:43)
[Java HotSpot(TM) 64-bit Server VM (Sun Microsystems Inc.)] on 

django/trunk r9619

when I typed
# jython install
there were lots of

"copying django/this/that -> build/lib/django/this/that"

then, build/lib/django/contrib/csrf/ throws up a traceback, 
with line 542 of
_posix.utimes(path, long(atime * 1000), long(mtime * 1000))


TypeError: utimes(): 3rd arg can't be coerced to long

I stuck some print statements into, and 

DEBUG: mtime=7310012245875128690

what? Checking with stat
# stat build/lib/django/contrib/csrf/

Hmm. Other files don't stat like that (XXX overtyped by me by the 
# stat build/lib/django/contrib/gis/

That  that Modify time is not nonsence, but it's not right either. see 

# ls -l build/lib/django/contrib/csrf/
-rw-r--r--  1 XXXXXX XXXXX 5037 7165064483007524707 

# ls -l  build/lib/django/contrib/gis/

Yeah, right.

# touch build/lib/django/contrib/gis/
# ls -l build/lib/django/contrib/gis/
-rw-r--r--  1 XXXXXX XXXXX 12528 Dec 10 09:25 

OK then,
# touch build/lib/django/contrib/csrf/
# ls -l build/lib/django/contrib/csrf/

Another "jython install" failed the same way further down, in 
contrib/webdesign. So I went on a touch rampage all over build/lib, 
then "jython install" completed OK.

But why was "jython build" making dodgy MTIMES in the build 
directory when stat in the source files looks fine?

Why is coreutils giving me nonsence with some of these dodgy MTIMES 
(but not all of them)?
