These two messages have convinced me that the correct approach is to kick the can down the road.  I will file a new issue and patch to fix os.defpath (by initializing os.defpath by calling confstr("CS_PATH")).  Then I will file a new issue and patch that will define a reasonable os.confstr() for platforms where HAVE_CONFSTR is not defined.
