No stupid mistake on your part -- I haven't tested Python with alpha
stdwin for AGES. You can remove the references to bitmap stuff (which
is only in the X11 version of stdwin) by commenting out the #define
HAVE_BITMAPS from stdwinmodule.c. The connectionnumber method you must
comment out manually from a few places in stdwinmodule.c.

No, you will have to build two Python binaries and decide (e.g. in an
alias or tiny script wrapper) which one to use.
