On a platform where dynamic loading is unsupported, the function "imp_load_dynamic" is not compiled (Python/import.c:1775), and the Python function "load_dynamic" (Python/import.c:1845) will not be included in the _imp module.  However, Lib/ attempts to import "load_dynamic" from _imp (Lib/, causing an ImportError if dynamic loading is unsupported.  

The interpreter is unable to start under these circumstances.  The error was encountered on m68k-atari-mint using GCC as the compiler.  This platform is a desktop environment, but has no support for true shared objects and libraries.
