[Python-Dev] Shorter float repr in Python 3.1?

Okay, I think I might have fixed up the float endianness detection for
universal builds on OS X.  Ned, any chance you could give this
another try with an updated version of the py3k-short-float-repr branch?

One thing I don't understand:

Is it true that to produce a working universal/fat build of Python,
one has to first regenerate configure and pyconfig.h.in using autoconf
version >= 2.62?  If not, then I don't understand how the
AC_C_BIGENDIAN autoconf macro can be giving the right results.
