I also thought of such a solution, and could accept it.

However, it is really trivial to implement for anybody invoking an
automatic build of Python: after the build completes, do

python -c 'import ext1,ext2,...' 2>/dev/null

and check the return status - and voila, you know whether your required
modules were built successfully.
