Roumen Petrov <bugtrack at roumenpetrov.info> added the comment:
a) NoneType object is not iterable. If the function don't return empty list later distutil will fail on the lines like libraries.extend(self.dll_libraries)
b) method for detection of a msvc runtime is not correct. If the method return a library GCC will link to two c-runtimes. Also some function dearation are not visible if is not specified appropriate preprocessor directive.
So I could not found reason this method to exist .
