In conversation with Dan, I have fixed my conda package (but overwritten the same version).  I needed to add this to the build:

# sudo apt-get install gcc-multilib
CC='gcc -m32' make python

I don't have 32-bit headers by default anymore on my distro.  With that change, I can run:

% conda install -c davidmertz python=0.9
% python
>>> 2*2
4

Dan sent me links to some patches he developed himself, but I have not applied them.  I'm not doubting that they are good and useful, but I'm trying to make something as close as possible to what was actually first released.
