[Python-Dev] problems with SUSv2 compatibility defines

One of the big problems with configure is that the defines that are
used to test features are not necessarily the same as the defines that
are used when those features are actually used in the program being

Python's configure script tests for altzone, and if the defines in
effect there were the same as the ones in effect during compilation,
altzone would not have been found and the compilation would have gone

I don't have a solution for this problem, but a problem it is.
