Ok, I'll check why PyVortex is not optional. It should be disabled
automatically when python is not found. Try passing --disabled-py-vortex
to your ./configure

Technically it should only be activated when python environment is
found. In any case, you can still disable it.

This is a good question. Currently PyVortex is not being built for
windows because there is no python-config script included into official
python win32 installer. This script is used by vortex ./configure to
detect and configure PyVortex....so it is required a bit of work to find
a way to make ./configure to enable pyvortex.
