Unable to compile on CentOS 5.5 x86_64

This is what I get when I try to compile on CentOS 5.5 x86_64:

gcc -pthread -shared build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/psycopgmodule.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/pqpath.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/typecast.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/microprotocols.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/microprotocols_proto.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/connection_type.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/connection_int.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/cursor_type.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/cursor_int.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/lobject_type.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/lobject_int.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/notify_type.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/xid_type.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/adapter_qstring.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/adapter_pboolean.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/adapter_binary.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/adapter_asis.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/adapter_list.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/adapter_datetime.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/adapter_pfloat.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/adapter_pdecimal.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/green.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/psycopg/utils.o -L/usr/lib64 -lpq -o build/lib.2.4/psycopg2/_psycopg.so

    Confirm the build problem on CentOS 5.5 X86_64.

    The following preliminary patch allows the library to build

    Likely the #include "psycopg/typecast_mxdatetime.h" a few lines below should be dropped too if compiling with mx.DateTime support enabled.

    We will look into a better fix for the next release.
