py-gobject3 croaks when building as follows:

In file included from 
                 from pygmaincontext.c:27:
 error: '_PyArg_ParseTuple_SizeT' is an unrecognized format function type
gmake[3]: *** [_glib_la-pygmaincontext.lo] Error 1

Digging around shows that this failure is here:

PyAPI_FUNC(int) PyArg_ParseTuple(PyObject *, const char *, ...) 
Py_FORMAT_PARSETUPLE(PyArg_ParseTuple, 2, 3);

and that the Py_FORMAT_PARSETUPLE business expands to

  __attribute__((format(PyArg_ParseTuple, 2, 3)))

and then to

  __attribute__((format(_PyArg_ParseTuple_SizeT, 2, 3)))

and apparently it expects gcc to understand this -- there are config
defines for whether to enable it, and they're turned on, even though
it evidently doesn't work and, I would think, can't seriously be
expected to work.

What is this about? And why is it breaking only in py-gobject3?

(Both python26 and python27 builds exhibit the same behavior.)
