The DLLs are currently necessary for the Python 3.1 dlls. I meant to
build better versions for us, but it wasn't working right away (static
libs instead of dlls), that I opted for default build. The rest of
Blender is built with /MT.

Currently Blender 2.49b 32bit comes with all necessary dlls. Blender
2.5 32bit and 64bit will both have all necessary dlls provided.
