What would be acceptable ? I quickly tested on my macbook, on mac os X: 
it takes ~ 2 seconds / 25 functions tests. If speed really is a problem, 
than we can first test them as a group, and then one by one for the 
platforms where it does not work (something like AC_CHECK_FUNCS_ONCE, if 
you are familiar with autotools) ?

It should not be too complicated to add this to distutils, and I believe 
it would make the configuration more robust,

cheers,

David
