OK, the test failures reported for this bug now succeed with Python-3.3
from latest HG head . 
But Python-3.3 now has its own new test failures :



[149/354] test_import                                                                                                                                                 
test test_import failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):

Hmm, don't want a python that can't do 'import' .

So my choices are, in order to get a working modern python release  :

  o fix the broken dynamic loader in Python-2.7
  o fix the broken import mechanism in Python-3.3

Thanks !  



BTW, this error occurs because I don't have RPM :
[ 93/354] test_distutils
error: error creating temporary file ${prefix}/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.amzIxR: No such file or directory
error: Unable to open temp file.
error: error creating temporary file ${prefix}/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.nwKS2z: No such file or directory
error: Unable to open temp file.
test test_distutils failed -- multiple errors occurred; run in verbose mode for details

this is because I don't have RPM (or maybe an old broken RPM inst) -
I suggest this test should test for the existence and usability
of rpm before using rpm - and should skip itself if rpm not usable.
