Since nobody else replied, I'll have to speak up here :-)

I'm running a stock Debian 'testing' Linux, which currently means 

libc6          2.3.2.ds1-16
gcc            3.3.4-2
python         2.3.4-4

/usr/include/python2.3/pyconfig.h *does* define HAVE_USABLE_WCHAR_T.

If you want to reply by mail, substitute my first and last name for
'foo' and 'bar', respectively, and remove '.invalid'.
