Hi Metz

There are some extra patches needed, I posted about these previously
(see attached), I didn't want to want to complicate this important merge
by trying to get these patches included, I will submit them in a merge
request later today or tomorrow now that this is in. However please note
that although these patches will allow a build and configure from pure
python3 (or at least they used to), getting tests to run under pure
python3 is another matter :-) there is quite some more work to be done
for that. However once the remainder of the test port patches are in I
will start to concentrate on that.
