This is unfortunately deceptive :-(  The C-runtime mismatch problem
happens when memory malloc'd in an extension module is free'd by the
interpreter (or vice versa). Things might work for a while with this
mismatch, but will (almost) always crash/hang/etc. in hard to track
down ways later.

Using the link that max provided above, I managed to build and install
without passing any switches and getting no error messages.
