Compiling Python 2.6.4 on IRIX 6.5 - "don't know how to make Parser/printgrammar.o (bu42)."

I'm trying to compile Python 2.6.4 on my IRIX 6.5 machine.  I have no
idea how to fix this problem, and am hoping someone may know what to
do.  The closest thread I've found to this is,
but that patch has already been added, yet I still get the error.  The
post makes reference to trying gmake, but I don't have that installed
on this machine.  I'm stuck with regular make.

configure line:
../../configure --prefix=/usr/local/openSource/architectureIndependent
--exec-prefix=/usr/local/openSource/IRIX6 --enable-shared --with-
threads --without-gcc --with-cxx-main=/usr/bin/CC

make history:

[14:50:54]> make
        /usr/bin/CC -c -OPT:Olimit=0 -DNDEBUG -O  -I. -IInclude -
I../../Include   -DPy_BUILD_CORE -o Modules/python.o ../../Modules/
don't know how to make Parser/printgrammar.o (bu42).
