[Python.NET] Several patches to improve compilation with Mono

So if git is producing your udiff files, does that mean that you are 
actually pulling from the clone that's on github?

That would explain why you didn't have the python2.7 mapping, anyway.

I (sort or) like the clrmodule_make.il input file name, but what to do 
for Windows folks?

I also like the DESTDIR parameter for the install target - and will 
commit that.
Thanks again.
