An attempt to build python-2.7.9 resulted in this error:

    renaming "readline" since importing it failed ... undefined symbol: UP

This happened because setup.py chose "-lncursesw" as the readline terminal
library. Although libncursesw.so itself links to libtinfow.so, in order to
succeed with the "--as-needed" linker flag, setup.py would have to directly
choose libtinfow.so.  The part of the patch that deals with that does not rely
on the other changes that were made to accomodate -isystem in CPPFLAGS.
