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.
