I dunno what else to say. You're free to play around with things on our
Linux machine (eddie); we have various flavors of GCC 3.3 and 3.4
available, with Pythons compiled with those plus the system GCC 3.3.5.
GCC 2.95.3 (with or without STLport) works fine with the system Python
(compiled with the system's GCC 3.3.5), but Boost.Python tests fail to
run properly unless Python is recompiled with the same GCC 3.3.6 or
