[Python-Dev] Python build trouble with the new gcc/binutils

I can build Python 2.2.1 just fine on my Solaris 2.8 machine using gcc
3.1.1 and binutils 2.12.1

If I install either binutils 2.13 or the just-released gcc 3.2, I can
no longer build Python -- it dumps core quite far into the build process.

I don't really have a clue as to whether it's a gcc problem, a binutils
problem, or a Python problem.  Any suggestions as to how to proceed?
