Opening a new thread.

I prefer to do my python work inside of virtualenv. Sadly pygame does 
not compile via pip (or easy_install). I really don't want to use one 
of the binary installs as it "pollutes" the system and make upgrades 
more challenging. Linux (.deb) package management should be a beacon to 
the other operating systems on how to make packages.

Here's the nasty errors messages from clang when attempting to install 
(compile) pygame.

    src/scale_mmx64.c:424:27: error: invalid instruction mnemonic 'movsxl'
    src/scale_mmx64.c:499:27: error: invalid instruction mnemonic 'movsxl'

I'll clone the mercurial repo and see what's going on.
