Hmm... on Dec. 22 there was a sizable change to export a C API from
the module; since then there's only been one minor change.  Perhaps
the last version you compiled successfully was from before I checked
in those changes.  In any case, I'll look into it as soon as my Compaq
test drive account is usable and I have access to a Tru64 4.0
machine again.  Thanks for the report!

Once the PEP 229 changes go in, many more modules will be tried on
many more platforms.  It might be worth considering setting up a
Tinderbox for Python, or at least doing a systematic test on several
platforms before releases.
