> The patch LGTM but there is Borland C support in distutils

As discussed on python-dev, it's fine to support more C compiler to compile extensions, than compilers supported to build Python itself.

> there are several mentions in the documentation

I did a quick check. It looks like "Borland" is usally mentionned to compile extensions, not to compile Python.

> May be there are mentions in some build-support files.
