An "enum" for Python 3
An unexpected perf feature

A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
automake can't generate the commands libtool executes because automake
runs on the distributor's machine, not the builder's, and doesn't have a
clue what sort of system the build will take place on.
automake vs. GNU make

Ah, yes, indeed.
(I didn't work with autotools in the last years).
Then, couldn't the configure script handle that ? It runs on the build

Yes, it could: but in libtool 1.5 it doesn't :(
I never said libtool didn't suck. It's just better than anything else
around right now for the job it does, and it has a *lot* of hard-won
knowledge of shared library wierdness on manifold systems encoded into it
(as autoconf does of other cross-system variation).
