That raises the question then why the error in pyport.h is
produced. LONG_BIT comes from limits.h, and, if _LP64 is defined, is
64. So I'm still uncertain what you did to provoke this error.

curses fails for me as well, since it finds a 32-bit ncurses
installation; dbm also core dumps here.

This is a known bug (#460357), which has been fixed in CVS.

I believe this also has been fixed in CVS.

Building python in 64-bit mode on Solaris works already. Some modules
may still not work; patches are welcome.

I don't really see a need, since it works fine without the patches.
