I was able to build Python 2.5 on Solaris 10 Sparc, Mac OS X PPC, Linux
PPC/Intel, all 32bit and 64bit, shared and static, only with Bob's help.
It's not a proof. It's not mathematical correct. But it works. Grab all
your avalaible test platforms and try for yourself what Bob's patch will
'break', and report it.
Sorry, but that meta discussions about correct builds are not what a bug
report should be used for. Such improvements are up to developer forums
where you can design "correct" Python build scripts and discuss them
over and over again.
