I was thrown by the "Failed to find the necessary bits to build these
modules" message at the end of newer Python builds, and thought that
this indicated that the Python executable itself was not built.
That's arguably stupidity on my part, but I wonder if others will not
trip on this, too.

Would it be possible to change this wording slightly, to something like

   Python built, but failed to find the necessary bits to build these
