[New-bugs-announce] [issue5607] Lib/distutils/test/test_util: test_get_platform bogus for OSX
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Ronald Oussoren <ronaldoussoren at mac.com>:
the testcase test_get_platform is not entirely correct for the OSX case.
Background: OSX supports fat binary builds (Apple calls those Universal
Binaries). The testitem for OSX gives a false negative when you run the
test with a Universal Binary build of Python on OSX.
To get correct test results on OSX you'll have to patch a number of other
variables as well, such as CFLAGS, because get_platform uses those to
detect if you're running on a universal build.
