[Python-Dev] Multilib strikes back

This is yet another pain caused by the existance of both 32 and 64-bit
libraries/binaries on the same system

This is the bug that landed on my plate:


Even though I had no plan to have both 32 and 64-bit python on the same
system, the reporter of this bug is trying to compule a 32-bit version of
libxml on a 64-bit system, and is getting into weird errors, mostly because
the .h files have the wrong definition.

Please see comment #2 from Jakub about possible solutions. If one has strong
preferences one way or another please let me know and I'll write the patch,
otherwise I tend to favor the (int(sizeof()) option.
