I've narrowed it down somewhat.

Apparently what happens is that setup.py successfully installs the
"struct" extension (or so it thinks), then crashes when it is trying
to import it.  After it has done so, I can duplicate the crash by
executing ./python and then typing

	  import struct

so I don't have to run setup.py at all to cause the crash at that

I'm trying to rebuild without dynamic loading now, to see what happens.
