New submission from Ronald Oussoren <ronaldoussoren at mac.com>:

I'm trying to build python 2.6 on a Mac OS X 10.3 system. This fails to 
build the multiprocessing extension due to a missing definition of "struct 

It turns out that you have to include <sys/uio.h> to get that definition 
on OSX 10.3.

Adding '#include <sys/uio.h>' to multiprocessing.h enables building the 
extension on OSX 10.3, but is probably not the right solution.
