I have posted two messages here regarding the new setup.py
mechanism for building Modules/ but have received no comments
on them so far. Here's another go:

1. I think that setup.py should output warnings about modules 
   which cannot be built for some reason rather than having
   ot the build process completely.

2. I suggest adding -L/usr/lib/termcap to the readline extension.
   This doesn't hurt anywhere and will get this extension to compile
   on SuSE Linux too.

Thoughts ?
