Ok, looking at SourceForge and google this seems to be fixed in cvs
HEAD.  Would it be possible to put the same patch into the cvs
python-2.2 branch, please? [1]

Footnotes: 
[1]  If it is in there, it doesn't work for me with current python cvs
     branch release22-maint.  I still have to manually add -lieee.
