If we remove Modules/getpath.c, it will no longer be possible to automatically computes the path configuration when one of the following getter function will be called:

* Py_GetPath()
* Py_GetPrefix()
* Py_GetExecPrefix()
* Py_GetProgramFullPath()
* Py_GetPythonHome()
* Py_GetProgramName()

It means that these functions would not return NULL if called before Python is initialiazed, but return the expected string once Python is initialized.

Moreover, Py_SetPath() would no longer automatically computes the "program full path" (sys.executable).
