Python2.0 doesn't compile out of the box on RedHat7
i.e. using the Python2.0 distribution released about 3 weeks ago
the compilation bombs out in Include/pyport.h
this can be circumvented by uncommenting the if endif
pair immmediately before the line in pyport.h where
the error is reported
this seems to be caused by some changes to limits.h and xopen_limits.h !
The Python maintainers have been contacted: their reply was
"We will not make a change in the Python source tree to work around a
Linux distro. It is straightforward to fix this yourself"
please fix this!!!!
Python is important for you!!
