This is upstream python bug 969718 offhand; basically if cflags exists
for distutils consumers, base cflags don't make it fully through-
meaning no -fno-strict-aliasing as is generally needed for building
As for py3k, looks of it py3.1 still suffers it.
Either way, this is the wrong thing to fix- python's distutils
needs fixing, not consumers. In snakeoil, we detect and fix it on the
fly to provide a fixed version of distutils, but obviously not many
pkgs consume that...
