[issue13813] "sysconfig.py" and "distutils/util.py" redundancy

New submission from Jesús Cea Avión <jcea at jcea.es>:

During development of patch for issue #13803, I found redundancy between "sysconfig.py" and "distutils/util.py". The functions are the same, and the return values must be the same too. So programmers *MUST* remember to change both sources in sync.

This redundancy must be trimmed.

This is not strictly a bugfix, so could be not adequate for 2.7/3.2, but applying for 3.2 at least would easy future merges.
