IMO this is a fault of the autowhatever configuration stuff, not just an enhancement. If determines that there is no st_blocks field, it tries to link against a non-existant fileblocks.o file:

./mingw/Makefile:220:LIBOBJS=	 ${LIBOBJDIR}fileblocks$U.o
i486-mingw32-gcc: error: Python/fileblocks.o: No such file or directory

I am not really an autoconf or whatever expert, but it seems if you use a lower-level bit of code it avoids the problem; see avoid-fileblocks.patch.
