What kind of C library do you have on your system? Is there a
definition for UCHAR_MAX in gcc's limits.h
(i.e. /usr/lib/gcc-lib/<arch>/<version>/include/limits.h)? If so, why
is this not used?

If you can figure it out, please submit a patch to
sf.net/projects/python. If you can't figure it out, please submit a
bug report. However, it seems that your C library/compiler is quite
broken, so unless somebody who understands all this also has access to
a Slackware installation, no solution might be forthcoming.
