The most likely place is the attempt to import the newly-built module.
So running the python, and performing an explicit 'import struct'
should give the same crash. It would be good if you could find out why
it crashes (probably using a debugger). If you want to work around
this problem, you can try linking the struct module statically through

In any case, it would be great if you could submit your experience to
sourceforge.net/projects/python, either as a patch to configure.in, or
as a patch to README.
