Whoa, so wait a second here.  Just hold on.  We are no longer building blender
for x86_64?  People need this application.  Did you even bother to try and fix
the error?  Looking at the build logs it seems all that needs to be done is to
change an int to a long?  Am I not correct???

Comment 2 Jochen Schmitt 2006-12-12 17:27:43 UTC
Sorry, I have take a look on the position where the compiler have complaint the
build. Unfortunately, I can't see naything wrong, what make sense for me.

This problem occured only in the devel branch where python-2.5 was introduced.
On Fc-5 and FC-6 there are no problem for building the x86_64 architecture,
becouse python-2.4 is available on this branches.

I assume, somethin was changed in the python headers which coused this issues.
