I suspect you either had a version of Python, or had the embeddable distribution rather than a proper installation (the embeddable distribution should not be used unless you're embedding, hence the name :)).  Either way, the standard distribution started normally imports site by default, which monkeypatches `help` into builtins on all platforms.
