It's no longer possible to build Python from a different directory. Example:

git clean -fdx
mkdir build
cd build/
../configure --with-pydebug

It fails with:

../Programs/_freeze_module importlib._bootstrap ../Lib/importlib/ ../Python/frozen_modules/importlib__bootstrap.h
make: ../Programs/_freeze_module: No such file or directory

I'm working on a fix.
