[Python-Dev] Python 2.5b3 and AIX 4.3 - It Works

Because of a requirement to remain compatible with AIX 4.3, I have been forced
to stay with Python 2.3, because while 2.4 would compile under AIX 4.3, it would
segfault immediately when run.

I'm happy to report that Python 2.5b3 compiles and runs fine under AIX 4.3, and
passes most of its test suite.  However, here are a few test failures.  I
realize AIX 4.3 is long obsolete, so is there any interest on the list for me to
report which tests failed and how?
