That works!   I did a "rebuild all" ("distclean", then "all") and didn't get
any errors.  

My patch can be ignored as I don't think its worth updating for a single line
of code (uncommenting out PYTHON_EMBED).  There are comments around 
PYTHON_EMBED that seem unnecessary at this point as long as Python 2.7 is the
standard, but I'll let core developers decide if they should be removed.

The wiki needs updating to note that Python scripting is now possible in
Windows, but I'd otherwise consider this resolved.
