configure's '--without-gcc' switch doesn't set the compiler for
the setup.py steps.  You could just change into the
JapaneseCodecs and KoreanCodecs directories and do
CC=cc python setup.py build
in each (or modify the Makefile).  Then when the install step
comes the binaries would have already been built.

You *might* be able to just remove them from the PACKAGES
definition in misc/Makefile to build without them, but I've not
tried.  (I don't think they are customizeable from configure's
--without-PACKAGE switch.)


P.S.  One other note... if you aren't using Gnu make, you may
need to modify messages/Makefile.  Some implementations of make
don't understand the substitution referenences for LANGDIRS,
