Have we reached closure on the above?

I can build the current Python CVS with gcc 2.95.2-6 but not 2.95.2-7
unless I specify -I/usr/include/w32api.  Will the "extra" option be
needed for 2.95.2-8 and later too?

FWIW, I'm would like to get an appropriate patch into Python 2.1b1
(scheduled for release tomorrow) to handle the above, if necessary.
