I would like to propose three changes:

1) rename distutils, either _distutils or _buildutils sounds good to me
2) make distutils a build-only dependency and no longer install it with make install and other install targets
3) start to build extensions from Makefile or Modules/Setup

For (3) we have to move some checks into autoconf and maybe extend Modules/Setup to support conditional compilation.
