Description of problem:

appears wrong for platform (bad gcc/glibc config?)."
afaik I have the latest glibc gcc rpms for 7.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.down load from python.org Python-2.1.1.tgz 
3. ./configure
4. ./make

Actual Results:  make test
gcc -c -g -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -I. -I./Include -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -o
hon.o Modules/python.c
In file included from Include/Python.h:54,
                 from Modules/python.c:3:
Include/pyport.h:422:2: #error "LONG_BIT definition appears wrong for
platform (bad gcc
/glibc config?)."
make: *** [Modules/python.o] Error 1
