To reproduce:
touch -d 2038-01-20 /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/
python3 /usr/lib64/python3.6/

  File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/", line 198, in compile_path
    legacy=legacy, optimize=optimize)
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/", line 90, in compile_dir
    legacy, optimize):
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/", line 138, in compile_file
struct.error: 'l' format requires -2147483648 <= number <= 2147483647

It could use either 
64 bit int (requires new .pyc format with different magic number) or
unsigned 32 bit int (gives us only another 68 years)
