[Distutils] Possible fix for sysconfig.py (Win32)

The call to parse_config_h() in _init_nt() [both found in
distutils/sysconfig.py] clobbers the previously correct values of PREFIX and
EXEC_PREFIX for the standard Python installation on Win32. This in turn
leads to the compiler picking up the wrong Python include file paths (and
probably other glitches I haven't stumbled onto yet).

One workaround (the one I've used) is to comment out that call to
parse_config_h() ;)
