[Python-Dev] What's required to keep OS/2 support in Python 3.3

Hi All,

I'm a little slow in responding to 
but I'm interested in stepping up to help maintain OS/2 support in 
Python 3.3 and above.

I've been building Python 2.x for a while, and currently have binaries 
of 2.6.5 available from http://os2ports.smedley.info

Unlike Andrew Mcintyre, I'm using libc for development 
(http://svn.netlabs.org/libc) rather than emx.  libc is still being 
developed whereas emx hasn't been updated in about 10 years.

I haven't attempted a build of 3.x yet, but will grab the latest 3.x 
release and see what it takes to get it building here.  I expect I'll 
hit the same problem with sysconfig.get_config_var("CONFIG_ARGS"): as 
with 2.7.2 but we'll wait and see.
