Python has been build with gcc 4.0.1, which was described to me as "ancient". Is there a python version build with 4.2.whatever? 

In particular, I have trouble interfacing python to C libraries because python is built with 32 bit pointers, my libraries with 64-bit. Would it make sense for python to start using 64-bit pointers?
