No python still use custom hack for MSVC.  win32.S include this hack and 
could be compiled with gcc.

Yes and no.  get_config_var will use makefile variables (indirectly from 
If you add a make macro(variable) then it will be installed.
Setup info is designed to communicate from configure to without 
to expose data to installation.

For historical reasons. Before other commits to start to look info some 
generated by autotool files.

May be.
I don't know how to group split. If is based on functionality patch 
order will be important as more then one patch will update "near lines" -
for instance pyport.h is difficult to split :(. could be rewritten as separate issue, already opened.

Title is correct. Hosts include native linux, cygwin, mingw and cross 
linux->mingw, linux->android ( not published ). All from one and the 
same source tree.
