It's been a while that a failure to build some extension modules doesn't
cause the "compile" step to fail; this just happened with the _ssl.pyd
module before.

I'm not sure how build.bat communicates an error, or whether devenv.com
fails in some way when some build step fails.

Revision 43156 may contribute here, which adds additional commands
into build.bat after devenv.com is invoked.
