configure fails

P: n/a
Hi,

I have the following error on a OSX.5 OS with CC=icc and using the
python-svn files:

checking size of wchar_t... configure: error: cannot compute sizeof (wchar_t)

I would like to help so we can compile python with icc/OSX.

This looks like a autoconf bug (./configure is normally created by autoconf)
..
You should check whether this wchar_t configure computation is part of the
standard autoconf macro's or a Python-project specific autoconf macro.

Then fix the problem and supply a patch to the right community.

You may want to subscribe to some autoconf mailing list

Sincerely,
Albert
