When Python is compiled on OS X with llvm, the decimal module behaves erratically (simple calculations are wrong, most doctests fail). This was originally reported here:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7590137/dividing-decimals-yields-invalid-results-in-python-2-5-to-2-7

and the compiler dependency was tracked down here:

https://trac.macports.org/ticket/31444

Although it looks like MacPorts is going to force use of gcc, it'd still be better for Python to behave correctly when compiled with llvm.
