A clean checkout of VC6 now builds as well as it did before this.  I didn't
update it to use any newer versions of external modules, and am out of time
for this so won't.

_sre.c still generates lots of warnings about mixed signed/unsigned

test_bsddb3 still has tons of failures on Win98SE (many more than in 2.3.3).

test_unicode_file still fails on Win98SE:

test test_unicode_file failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\CODE\PYTHON\lib\test\test_unicode_file.py", line 142, in
  File "C:\CODE\PYTHON\lib\test\test_unicode_file.py", line 116, in
  File "C:\CODE\PYTHON\lib\test\test_unicode_file.py", line 32, in
    os.utime(filename, None)
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode characters in
                     position 6-7: ordinal not in range(128)

test_urllib2 still fails on Win98SE:

test test_urllib2 failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\CODE\PYTHON\lib\test\test_urllib2.py", line 345, in test_file
    r = h.file_open(Request(url))
  File "C:\CODE\PYTHON\lib\urllib2.py", line 1058, in file_open
    return self.open_local_file(req)
  File "C:\CODE\PYTHON\lib\urllib2.py", line 1073, in open_local_file
    stats = os.stat(localfile)
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '\\test.txt'

test___all__ just started failing on Win98SE, but I assume that's due to a
very recent checkin from Barry, and that it will fail the same way
everywhere now:

test test___all__ failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\CODE\PYTHON\lib\test\test___all__.py", line 69, in test_all
  File "C:\CODE\PYTHON\lib\test\test___all__.py", line 42, in check_all
    exec "from %s import *" % modname in names
  File "<string>", line 1, in ?
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'freenet_b64encode'
