Is the latest gdb in cvs, expected to build on centos-5 ?

I'm seeing this build failure:

gcc -g -O2   -I. -I. -I./common -I./config -DLOCALEDIR="\"/usr/local/share/locale\"" -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I./../include/opcode -I./../opcodes/.. -I./../readline/.. -I../bfd -I./../bfd -I./../include -I../libdecnumber -I./../libdecnumber  -I./gn

./python/python-internal.h:179: warning: dereferencing 'void *' pointer
./python/python-internal.h:179: error: request for member 'ob_refcnt' in something not a structure or union

I'm building with:

    cd ~/gdb_cvs_dir/src
    ./configure --disable-werror

My centos-5 has python-2.4 (python-devel.i386 2.4.3-24.el5).

Many thanks,
