 GCC 4.1,
 GCC 4.2: There is a known incompatibility between Python and GCC,
-         where GCC 4.1 takes an interpretation of C different from
-	 prior GCC releases, in an area where C has undefined behaviour
-	 (namely, integer arithmetic involving -sys.maxint-1).

 	 As a consequence, compiling Python with GCC 4.1/4.2 is not
