After checking the python sources, -Wno-long-double has been removed
starting python 2.6. The comment in configure.in for 2.6 is that only
apple-built gcc support -Wno-long-double. But since you use -arch, you
use Apple gcc, so I don't think the comment is entirely accurate.

This is a bit strange, you've never seen the problem before ?
