I've found a bug in the curses module that is causing problems:

 /* -------------------------------------------------------*/

That is, there is no sentinel in the PyCursesWindow_getsets list. Shouldn't this cause failures on more platforms than just OSX?

With this patch I can build python 3.3 with clang (as included in Xcode 4.2.1). 

BTW. clang as included with Xcode 4.2.1 seems to build the attached copy of unicode.c without problems, the gcc command still fails though.

I did run into problems when building outside of the source directory, but that seems to be an unrelated issue.
