[New-bugs-announce] [issue6918] ctypes compilation error on SnowLeopard

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

When I compile the trunk on MacOS X 10.6 I get a compile (or rather 
link) error in ctypes:

ld: in build/temp.macosx-10.5-fat3-
clean/Modules/_ctypes/libffi_osx/powerpc/ppc-darwin.o, unsupported 
encoding in FDE for architecture ppc

This makes it impossible to build a univeral binary Python framework on 
OSX 10.6.

I don't think I'm running into the same issue with PyObjC, it that works 
I'll port PyObjC's version of ppc-darwin to the version of libffi that's 
used by ctypes.
