The fact that the tests run at all show that everything installed
properly.  The three failures that you see don't look serious, and are
probably only failing due to differences in the development and
installation environments on Windows.  One of these days I hope to
have a bulidbot that automatically installs and tests Python on every
commit on Windows, but we're not there yet.  Until then, investigating
these failures and contributing patches to fix them could be a great
way to get involved in CPython development!
