CE 2.11 doesn't have a CRTL like CE 3.0 does.

The ARM port of Python 2.2 is using the CRTL in CE 3.0

Mark's older port included it's own CRTL, but I think the source notes indicate that 
some work is needed on the CRTL to fix problems.

So .. even though you can use EVT to compile for 2.11, you still have a lot more work 
to add CRTL emulation to the build.

Yes, that's how I did the ARM release.
