Sorry, but the commit r69598 (due to Issue4524) has a problem. On
Windows and Linux (although not on MacOSX), test_distutils fails:

test test_distutils failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python26\lib\distutils\tests\", line 93,
in test_version_int
    old = sysconfig._config_vars.get('VERSION')
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'get'

Using the documented API (`sysconfig.get_config_vars()`) instead of an
uninitialized private variable (`sysconfig._config_vars.get('VERSION')`)
may fix it.

The following session is from my a Windows machine:

>>> from distutils import sysconfig
>>> print sysconfig._config_vars
>>> s = sysconfig.get_config_vars()
>>> s
{'EXE': '.exe', ...}
>>> sysconfig._config_vars
{'EXE': '.exe', ...}

We face this failure while testing the ActivePython builds based on
Python 2.6.2.
