We see following compiler error when 'Python2.5.1' is compiled under 
VC.NET 2002 ( 7.0.9466 ). This happens in 'pythoncore' project:

------ Build started: Project: pythoncore, Configuration: Release 
Win32 ------

The fix for the above problem is given below where _MSC_VER is 
increased more than 1300 that has LL and ULL literal suffix. VC.NET2002 
is a C89 compiler and it doesn't have LL and ULL support.

/* VC 7.1 has them and VC 6.0 does not.  VC 6.0 has a version number of 
   Microsoft eMbedded Visual C++ 4.0 has a version number of 1201 and 
   define these.
   If some compiler does not provide them, modify the #if 
appropriately. */
#if defined(_MSC_VER)
#if _MSC_VER > 1300
#define HAVE_UINTPTR_T 1
#define HAVE_INTPTR_T 1
/* VC6 & eVC4 don't support the C99 LL suffix for 64-bit integer 
literals */
#define Py_LL(x) x##I64
#define Py_ULL(x) Py_LL(x##U)
#endif  /* _MSC_VER > 1300  */
#endif  /* _MSC_VER */


Please let me know your comments and if the fix looks rights, please 
incorporate in your future release.

Martin, it looks like you made some changes in rev 46064.  Can you
suggest anything?

The actual change that broke that was r41672, which added the ULL
suffix. r46064 fixed it for VC6 and embedded VC.

Raising the minimum _MSC_VER to above 1300 is fine (VC 7.1 is 1310).

I personally can't test with VS 2002 anymore, so I have to trust that it
doesn't support the suffix, and that it's value of _MSC_VER is 1300.

Thanks for the report. This is now fixed in r58430 and r584301
