Objects/ is broken, and make stop on cygwin-1.7.35-i686.

If built-in python is not found in make processing, Objects/ generating will fail.
Because Objects/ is generated using $(PYTHON) in Makefile, but  $(PYTHON) variable is a hard-coding value that isn't check a built-in python existent.

make steps to fail and error message:
$ ./configure --prefix=/opt/py34
$ touch Include/typeslots.h
$ make
python.exe ./Objects/ < ./Include/typeslots.h > Objects/
/bin/sh: python.exe: command not found
Makefile:851: recipe for target 'Objects/' failed
make: *** [Objects/] Error 127

Cygwin python executable files:
$ find /usr/bin/ -name 'python*.exe'

I wrote the patch to replace $(PYTHON).

Add TYPESLOTSGEN to  TYPESLOTSGEN values is the built-in python.
If the built-in python is not found, TYPESLOTSGEN echoes message that is skipping like ASDLGEN.
Generated the configure script using autoreconf.
Modify to replace $(PYTHON) to $(TYPESLOTSGEN).
And remove $(PYTHON) that isn't used anywhere.  It seems already needless.

Although I understand that the generated file touch can avoid to fail regenerate, I want to check built-in python to generate safer the Objects/

Sorry nobody acted on your patch earlier. This is the same as Issue 26662, which has a more general patch that does the same sort of thing.
