build python on Celeron D

I'm having problems with python 2.4.4 built on a Celeron D. I had problems
earlier with that processor which I think has understands some 64 bit
instructions (whatever that means) but is still 32 bit. Thus when e.g. trying to
build numpy with the self built python I get that error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 89, in ?
  File "", line 59, in setup_package
    from numpy.distutils.core import setup
  File "/mnt/home/ck/prog/scipy/numpy-1.0.1/numpy/", line 36, in ?
  File "numpy/core/", line 5, in ?
    import multiarray
/media/hda6/home/ck/prog/scipy/numpy-1.0.1/numpy/core/ undefined
symbol: Py_InitModule4

which is related to 32<->64 issues, right?

So my question is how do I force python to be built with 32bit?
