cross-compiling python-2.5.1 for PPC, error in Modules/unicodedata.o


R

not sure if this is the right list for this, but it's a starting
point. i'm using a wind river linux development environment to build
a full system for a powerpc board, and that includes cross-compiling
python-2.5.1 for ppc. the compile fails thusly:

powerpc-wrs-linux-gnu-ppc_e500v2-glibc_std-gcc -shared
Modules/unicodedata.o -o Modules/unicodedata.so
Modules/unicodedata.o: file not recognized: File truncated
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:1159: *** [Modules/unicodedata.so] Error 1

.... snip ...

you can see that the file Modules/unicodedata.o is flagged as not
recognized. in fact, it exists but is empty. i'm going to continue
digging around but i'm open to suggestions. i also have the full 1700
lines of output from the beginning of the cross-compile if anyone
wants to see it. thanks, and is there a more appropriate place to ask
this?
