That's strange, because configtest.c means it is a configuration test,
and failure just means the tested feature is not available on the
platform - it should certainly not stop the build process. Is this
with Intel compiler ? I think I remembered having seen some bug either
in python or Intel Compiler in the error return code when launching
intel compiler in a subprocess.

I just checked the last svn version on windows 64: it builds OK with
compiler version 15 (either VS 2008 for 64 bits, which I don't have
access to, or with the Platform SDK 6.1, which is free).
