Yes ARCH variable in platform.make is empty(!) and I can't imagine why.

I found these setup.py ... but don't know which one is responsable for 
vdigit compilation
~$ locate 'distutils/setup.py'

I wonder (should I :-) whether a conflict between different python 
versions is a possible cause of the wrong include directroy.

1. My configure options:
./configure --with-tcltk-includes=/usr/include/tcl8.5/ 
--with-opengl-includes=/usr/include/GL/ --enable-shared --with-cxx 
--with-postgres --with-postgres-includes=/usr/include/postgresql/ 
--with-sqlite --with-odbc --with-python=/usr/include/python2.5/ 
--with-python=/usr/bin/python2.5-config --enable-largefile --with-x 
--with-motif --with-cairo --with-freetype --with-nls 
--with-wxwidgets=/usr/bin/wx-config --enable-64bit 
--with-libs=/usr/lib64  --with-curses  --with-proj-libs=/usr/local/lib/  
--with-proj-share=/usr/share/proj --with-ffmpeg
