Thanks for posting these.  Unfortunately I am hitting a weird error on
any cpython module I try to build.

In file included from /usr/local/chimera/include/python2.4/Python.h:55,
/usr/local/chimera/include/python2.4/pyport.h:612:2: error: #error
"LONG_BIT definition appears wrong for platform (bad gcc/glibc
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

There a lot of google hits referencing this error, but nothing recent
or helpful.  For some reason the architecture is incorrectly
identified as 64-bit.  I should note that the stock python does not
generate this error.  Are there any special requirements for build
with chimera?
