[New-bugs-announce] [issue9981] let make_buildinfo use a temporary directory on windows

New submission from Kristján Valur Jónsson <kristjan at ccpgames.com>:

make_buildinfo currently creates temporary files getbuildinfo2.c and getbuildinfo.o in the current build directory.  This update allows the caller to specify a temp directory to put those files in.
The PCBuild pythoncore.vcproj now makes use of this, to put the.c and .o files in the current temporary directory $(IntDir).

This makes it possible to compile multiple project configurations in parallel, with tools such as incredibuild, without fearing that each will trample the other's getbuildinfo files.

Also removed an unnecessary 64 bit config for make_buildinfo.
