Darwin jacob 8.11.0 Darwin Kernel Version 8.11.0: Wed Oct 10 18:26:00 PDT 2007; 
root:xnu-792.24.17~1/RELEASE_PPC Power Macintosh powerpc
This is the same bug reported in 42993 and 43436.

Basically, a compile of lang/python26 fails with the error:

ld: common symbols not allowed with MH_DYLIB output format with the 
-multi_module option

Both of the two previously cited bug appear to have been rejected as a 
Darwin-specific issue. It seems to me, however, the Makefile change would 
resolve a blocker to the compilation of a number of packages.
Attempt to build lang/python26 on Mac OS X.
PR 43436 presents a possible solution involving addition of a Darwin-specific 
patch. A simpler solution would be a patch to the package's Makefile which adds

CFLAGS+= -fno-common 

surrounded by a Darwin-specific test.
