[Stackless] Stackless Python 2.7.4rc2 available

Hi Richard,

obviously one of the files Parser/Python.asdl or Parser/asdl.py or 
Parser/asdl_c.py is newer that Include/Python-ast.h. This causes make to 
recreate the file from its source and the recreation requires python in 

To work around this issue, simply touch Include/Python-ast.h and 

A comment in Makefile.pre.in: "# XXX Note that a build now requires 
Python exist before the build starts". We change this requirement for hg 
checkouts or archives created by hg archive.
But we can build our official source archive in a way, that make this 
problem less likely. The mainline Python 2.7.4 release tarball contains 
the directories in a certain non-alphabetic order putting Parser near 
the top. This makes Include/Python-ast.h and Python/Python-ast.c a bit 
more current that Parser/Python.asdl. Perhaps we should use the same order.
