platform._syscmd_ver() calls platform.popen() which raises a DeprecationWarning. This causes tests with `@skip(platform.machine() == '...')` decorators to fail.

The fix is to call `os.popen()` - patch attached. (platform.popen() just raises the warning and then calls os.popen(), so should be no risk here.)

Larry - since this causes spurious failures in numpy's test suite, can we get it into 3.5?
