Freshly built python:

[mwh21@atrus build]$ PYTHONSTARTUP= ./python -U   
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback
Python 1.6a2 (#1, Jun 17 2000, 00:21:58)  [GCC 2.95.1 19990816/Linux (release)] on linux2

>>> eval("1")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: eval() argument 1 must be string or code object

(this is also why the import site fails).

exec is also broken.

eval and exec need to support Unicode objects.
This may be hard, and since -U is mostly experimental, I've given it a low priority.

Copied to Jitterbug on, where it's bug 375.  Closed here.
