[SciPy-user] gcc error Using weave.blitz()

I'm having problems getting weave.blitz() to work. I'm running RedHat 9 
with gcc 3.2.  I've gotten the latest scipy and weave from cvs.

The error seems to manifest whenever I try to pass in a variable from 
Python to the inline code.

For example this works fine:

from weave import line
code = 'printf("test\n");

But this doesn't:
a = 1
code = 'a=2'

It returns the following (not sure what the "file changed" thing is either):

file changed

    return old_setup(**new_attr)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/distutils/core.py", line 157, in setup
    raise SystemExit, "error: " + str(msg)
weave.build_tools.CompileError: error: command 'gcc' failed with exit 
status 1

Any help would be great.
