I tried it on IRIX 6.5.13m (SGI) using gcc, and I saw two problems in the test set. One was in test_locale and can be written off as a bug in the IRIX environment. The other was in test_pty for which there is a fix. Just get the latest version of test_pty (the bug is in the test).
One more problem I saw was that test_sundry was skipped with the message that there was an unresolvable symbol in bsddb.so by the name of dbopen. I don't quite understand why this is.

Has anyone had a chance to test that 2.1.2 builds and works correctly on anything? I'm testing on the following systems. sourceforge compile farm boxes are marked as such, compaq testdrive boxes to arrive as well.
For each, a fresh cvs export, followed by ./configure ; make ; make test.
Are there additional useful tests that could be run?

Linux/sparc Debian 2.2 (cf.sf.net) FAILED This is scary. I don't know why this one alone fails - it fails the test_math test.
Running the test by hand: anthonybaxter@usf-cf-sparc-linux-1:~/python212_linxsparc$ PYTHONPATH= ./python ./Lib/test/test_math.py math module, testing with eps 1e-05 constants acos Traceback (most recent call last): File "./Lib/test/test_math.py", line 21, in ? testit('acos(-1)', math.acos(-1), math.pi) OverflowError: math range error
Running math.acos(-1) gives the correct answer. Anyone got any idea?
I couldn't get py212 to build on our remaining solaris/x86 box, but then I can't get 2.1.1 to build on it either, without a whole lot of manual hackery - so I don't care about that. It's just a stuffed machine. :)
I was hoping to test on MacOS X, but the cf.sf.net boxes aren't answering... anyone else want to give it a go?
 sheesh. had to install telnet for the compaq boxes. first time I've not had ssh access somewhere for a while. . . (plus, they don't have cvs. sigh.)
