[New-bugs-announce] [issue17791] PC/pyconfig.h defines PREFIX macro

New submission from Christian Heimes:

The pyconfig.h file of the Windows build environment defines at least two macros without a Py/PY prefix:

PC/pyconfig.h:#define PREFIX ""
PC/pyconfig.h:#define EXEC_PREFIX ""

This has caused multiple issues in the past. For example libexpat uses PREFIX, too. When I was working on my XML patches it took me about half an hour to fix the build on Windows. PyLucence's JCC has run into the same issue, too. http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/lucene-pylucene-dev/201304.mbox/browser

Can we change the name of PREFIX to PY_PREFIX nad EXEC_PREFIX to PY_EXEC_PREFIX?
