Discovered on OS X 10.8 with clang 3.1, I'm having build failures for _json, _md5, _sha1, _sha256, _sha3, and _sha512 because _PyUnicode_CheckConsistency() is only defined when defined(Py_DEBUG) && !defined(Py_LIMITED_API) even though it is only used in assert() calls (like the one below). If you read the comment in Include/Python.h where assert.h is included it explicitly says that:

/* CAUTION:  Build setups should ensure that NDEBUG is defined on the
 * compiler command line when building Python in release mode; else
 * assert() calls won't be removed.

Based on the output below that is not currently happening in Not sure if that is a failure of or distutils of not specifying the flag.

I can't reproduce this on 10.8 with Apple clang 4.1.  Your compile options look a little funky, including a missing -fwrapv.  It looks like that option and -DNDEBUG are normally passed from ./configure into the Makefile through the OPT variable.  Are you by any chance overriding $OPT?
msg174051 - (view) Author: Brett Cannon (brett.cannon) * (Python committer) Date: 2012-10-28 14:51
Just to double-check I didn't screw up, I ran ``make distclean; ./configure; make -j8`` and the problem persists.

It is *only* files compiled through and not by the Makefile. I do not have OPT set, but I do have CFLAGS defined. But even if I explicitly unset CFLAGS, OPT,CPPFLAGS, LDFLAGS, and use a different shell the problem persists.

Something compiled by the Makefile:

I managed to fix it, but I did such a large swath of fixes that I need a little time to narrow down what did it. Report back later.

New changeset a2b7a3e1ce66 by Brett Cannon in branch '3.3':
Issue #16342: Lib/ is no longer put into Lib, so
msg174054 - (view) Author: Brett Cannon (brett.cannon) * (Python committer) Date: 2012-10-28 15:50
Well that was extremely frustrating to find out. Turns out a copy of Lib/ was lingering in my checkout and .hgignore was hiding that fact from me. Fixed .hgignore, deleted the wayward file, and everything is now fine.
