They even cause trouble.
Just yesterday I (well, not me: the pypy translation process) was
caught by the presence of the "bz2.lib" file,
which pypy found there, just because the linker lists c:\python25\LIBs
before other directories.
Of course the real bz2.lib, which defines the compression routines,
was installed somewhere else, and compilation failed.
