Mike, I am running on an AMD 64 bit FreeBSD machine

$ python
Python 2.4.3 (#2, Oct 17 2006, 22:10:52)
[GCC 3.4.4 [FreeBSD] 20050518] on freebsd6
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sys
>>> sys.maxint

and we're having no problems. I'm almost sure I had to change something in the
standard build to get our stuff working reasonably though. I think it might have
been related to unicode size, but I'm not sure. I'll have to try and dig out the
build procedure and see if I can figure out what was changed.
