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.
