I also got a core dump importing pyexpat on Solaris (SPARC)
and somebody else reported it on a *BSD system.

It appears to be a problem with older versions of expat not
being tested for.  I used gdb to trace it down to line 1972
in pyexpat.c where it attempts to define the first constant
from 1.95.8.  I had expat 1.95.7.  After upgrading to 1.95.8
it worked fine, as did the *BSD system. 

I think Python needs to check the expat version, as it does
elsewhere in the file, before defining those constants. 

I am still puzzelled over how it managed to compile
pyexpat.c in the first place...
