As there is no configuration system for python on Windows (issue30252) I tried to change pyconfig.h to comment out some lines:

 // #define NT_THREADS
 // #define WITH_THREAD

After building, I had to additionally patch 

* threadmodule.c and thread.c to exclude all content (I don't know if there is a way to exclude the file entirely with the Python build system - there should be something like that as part of a configure system).
* Wrap uses of PyThread_get_thread_ident() in ifdefs in timemodule.c. This is surprising because I would expect it to not compile on any platform without the ifdefs.
