Compiling python2.5 on IBM AIX

hi,

I'm trying to make a local install of python 2.5 on AIX and I'm
getting some trouble with _curses.

Here is how I tried to compile it :
export BASE=/usr/local/python251

cd Python.2.5.1
../configure --prefix=${BASE}/\
LDFLAGS="-L\${BASE}/lib/"\
PPFLAGS="-I\${BASE}/include/"\

make
make test
make altinstall

and the compilation stop with the following pb :

ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: _unctrl
ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .__fixsfsi
ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .setsyx

Stop.

I've compiled ncurses-5.6 in ${BASE}/lib but this haven't solved the
pb.

Any clue ?

Best regards

I haven't compiled it myself, but I'm told that the installation I
work with was compiled with:

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/vacpp/bin:/usr/vacpp/lib
../configure --with-gcc="xlc_r -q64" --with-cxx="xlC_r -q64" --disable-
ipv6 AR="ar -X64"
make
make install

if that helps.

It works fine with my compiler:
what $(which xlc)
/usr/vac/bin/xlc:
61 1.14 src/bos/usr/ccs/lib/libc/__threads_init.c,
libcthrd, bos510 7/11/00 12:04:14

I suspect the trailing comma is the issue. Googling for "xlc enumerator
trailing comma" gave me
http://sources.redhat.com/ml/gdb/1999-q1/msg00136.html
which says "AIX 4.2.0.0 xlc gives an error for trailing commas in enum
declarations".

Remove the extra comma at the end of line 22 of bufferobject.c
That should help you fix it.

I sent a bug report for that:
