Just an FYI that I had an error in test_distutils that this patch fixed. 

I was not doing anything abnormal. Just building from the 2.6 source
distribution, making a arch specific sub-directory, using ../configure,
make, and then make test. The original error happened on both x86_64 and
i686 platforms.

Hopefully the eventual fix makes it into 2.6.1.
