FWIW, I rebuilt static libraries for zlib, jbig, jpeg, openjpeg, tiff, webp, lcms, and freetype with /MT flag (a tedious task) and was able to build matplotlib and Pillow using Python 3.5.0rc1. As expected there is no dependency on the vcruntime DLL.

Even if everything is built with /MT and using UCRT, some extensions will still depend on version specific Visual C runtime DLLs, e.g. OpenMP, requiring users or distributors to install/bundle the VC runtime package.
