I've tried to google-up an answer but am not finding it, even tho i have
seen passing reference to what sounds like the same problem from others.

On a Solaris-8 machine i'm trying to build Python-2.3.2.  Using gcc-3.2.
All seems to go pretty well for a while, but them i'm getting the

$ make
case $MAKEFLAGS in \
*-s*)  CC='gcc' LDSHARED='gcc -shared' OPT='-DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes' ./python -E ./ -q build;; \
*)  CC='gcc' LDSHARED='gcc -shared' OPT='-DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes' ./python -E ./ build;; \
running build
running build_ext
Segmentation Fault - core dumped
gmake: *** [sharedmods] Error 139

I've confirmed the seg fault is coming from

   ./python -E build

'Utterly unsure how to proceed.  Thanks for any/all help.
