Ah, this is because of this OS X-specific snippet in sysconfig.get_platform():

    elif osname[:6] == "darwin":
        import _osx_support
        osname, release, machine = _osx_support.get_platform_osx(
                                            osname, release, machine)

get_config_vars() results in _init_posix() eventually being called, which attempts to import _sysconfigdata.

Ugh.  Looking into a patch now.
