Olivier et al,

I've built vlc (revision 24450) and it's building fine on Mandriva 2007.1 

# uname -a
Linux localhost #2 SMP Tue Dec 18 12:24:06 EST 2007 
i686 Intel(R) Celeron(R) D CPU 3.46GHz GNU/Linux

erob at localhost vlc-trunk/bindings/python $ vlc
VLC media player 0.9.0-svn Grishenko
[00000001] main libvlc debug: VLC media player - version 0.9.0-svn Grishenko - 
(c) 1996-2008 the VideoLAN team
[00000001] main libvlc debug: libvlc was configured 
with ./configure  '--prefix=/usr/local' '--enable-xosd' '--enable-python-bindings' '--enable-threads=posix' '--enable-wxwidgets' '--enable-realrtsp' '--enable-skins2' '--enable-debug' '--disable-oss'

I suspect the problem I'm having (related to building python bindings) is 
simply because the host I was using for compilation have a old kernel 
(2.6.12-12mdk), which is causing a lot's of problems anyways.  Sorry about
