Why does int(5.0) returns 0

I know that my python is seriously broken, but recompiling it with no
optimization and compiling cvs version of python does not solve it. I am
suspecting gcc or glibc (which I have install with pentium4 and -O3
optimization) is the culprit. I am recompiling glibc and gcc to see whether
that will solve it or not.

Here is the output:
