[Python-Dev] Compiling Python 2.5 and settinf UCS2 flag

Hi all,

I have an unusual use case in which some software I work on compiles a
version of Python for distribution. I'm not 100% across this as it's not at
all my area of responsibility, but I have been having some issues lately.

My hand-compiled version of Python 2.5 works just fine, and in turn uses a
hand-compiled Tcl/Tk with threading disabled.

The system then re-compiles Python2.5 for its own purposes. At this point,
it appears to ignore some of the options originally set using configure for

I have enough knowledge/control over the system to pass in some additional
compiler flags. I would like to try to force some behaviour normally set as
a flag to the configure script.

Is there a C compiler flag I can use to force the use of UCS2 unicode?
