The change was 2.47 by Jason Tishler.  The log message is:

    Patch #555929: Cygwin AH_BOTTOM cleanup patch

    This patch complies with the following request found
    near the top of configure.in:

    # This is for stuff that absolutely must end up in pyconfig.h.
    # Please use pyport.h instead, if possible.

    I tested this patch under Cygwin, Win32, and Red
    Hat Linux. Python built and ran successfully on
    each of these platforms.

Another reason for me to work on a tinderbox-like system for Python.
