Description Sven Suursoho 2006-05-21 10:24:18 EDT
Description of problem:
Building python's RPM package doesn't honore ./configure calculated compiler 
Although configured without debugging flags, rpmbuild manages to loose -DNDEBUG 
option from compiler's command line i.e. in production version of python, there 
are still active assertions.

It wouldn't be much a problem (except performance, of course), but it overlaps 
with python's bug that can cause python extension modules to crash. See http://

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
(a) see http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1483133&group_

2. Run
$ ./try
try: Objects/genobject.c:53: gen_iternext: Assertion `f->f_back != ((void *)0)'
