When building _testcapimodule.c as a builtin module, the build fails with this error because it doesn't take into account Py_BUILD_CORE from datetime.h.

I fixed it by adding this around the datetime.h include in _testcapimodule.c but not sure if this is correct....

/* Differentiate between building the core module and building extension
 * modules.
#ifdef Py_BUILD_CORE
#undef Py_BUILD_CORE
#include "datetime.h"
#define Py_BUILD_CORE
#include "datetime.h"

Anyone ?

I think this was fixed by

which added "#undef Py_BUILD_CORE_MODULE" to _testcapimodule.c.

The C API was deeply reworked since 2013. This issue was reported in Python 2.7. I'm confident that it has been fixed in the meanwhile.
