The module has been deleted in Python 3.

The compilation of the module was probably disabled on 64-bit because of bugs. I don't see any bugfix in your patch.

+64-bit platforms: The modules audioop, imageop and rgbimg don't work.
+       Don't try to enable them in the Modules/Setup file.  They
+       contain code that is quite wordsize sensitive.  (If you have a
+       fix, let me know!)
