Dan, anyone can mail to python-dev@python.org.

Everyone else, this appears to be a followup on the Mac OSX compiler error.

Dan, I replied to that on comp.lang.python; if you have bugs to report
(platform-specific or otherwise) against the current CVS tree, SourceForge
is the best place to do it.  Since the 1.6 release is history, it's too late
to change anything there.

Howdy Tim,

I can't send to the development list so your gonna have to suffer... ;-)

With regards to:


>cc -g -O2 -I./../Include -I.. -DHAVE_CONFIG_H   -c -o unicodectype.o
>cc: Internal compiler error: program cpp-precomp got fatal signal
>*** [unicodectype.o] Error 1
>make: *** [Objects] Error 2
>dhcppc4:~/Python-1.6] root#

I believe it's a bug in the cpp pre-comp as it also appears under 2.0.
I've been able to work around it by passing -traditional-cpp to the
compiler and it doesn't complain... ;-)  I'll take it up with Stan Steb
(the compiler guy) when I go into work on Monday.

Now if I can just figure out the test_sre.py, I'll be happy. (eg it
compiles and runs but is still not passing all the regression tests).
