New submission from Paul Menzel <paulepanter at users.sourceforge.net>:

Compiling Python in parallel sometimes fails as reported in [1] and [2].

    ./libpython2.6.so: undefined reference to `_PyParser_Grammar´

Fedora applies a patch by dmalcolm <dmalcolm at fedoraproject.org> which fixes this issue [3].

Could you please apply it. Could this also be applied to 2.6.x?
