Yep. I added Py_BUILD_CORE_BUILTIN as a workaround for building on
Windows. For extension modules on Windows there's a conflict between
Py_BUILD_CORE and some of the Windows symbols that get defined. My
Windows build knowledge is pretty limited so that's about as far as I
can go. :) Steve might be able to give you more info.
