Interesting.  How many of those casts are actually necessary to make 
things work?  Have you figured out more precisely why this is failing?
E.g., is it somehow that LONG_MIN ends up being an unsigned constant?

It seems to me that a better fix would be to fix LONG_MIN and LONG_MAX 
somewhere in the configuration files;  there are bound to be more uses of 
LONG_MIN and LONG_MAX in the source that are going to cause problems.

P.S.  Looking at your python-dev messages, does len([1, 2]) really return 
1L?  Not 2L?
