 That is probably not an issue -- presumably Py_NAN is supposed to
 generate a NaN and the warning is telling you that it's going to.

 Well... if it later reports that it failed to build the unicodedata
 module, and then dies because it's missing, something must have failed
 and this is the only other suspect in what you've supplied.
 However, I have no idea what's going on. You can check work/.work.log
 to find out exactly what pkgsrc is feeding to the compiler; if that's
 wrong, we can fix it, but if the problem is that the compiler is
 invoking the linker in a way that doesn't work we may be out of luck.
