It's not a "custom header", as far as I know.  portmap.c simply wraps a
couple of simple functions (pmap_set and pmap_unset) to allow
twisted.runner.inetd to support Sun-RPC services, in addition to the usual
TCP and UDP services.

I'm reasonably sure that Windows doesn't have Sun-RPC support, so that
module not compiling is expected behaviour.  If that's stopping setup.py
from completing, then that sounds like a bug, and a bug report added to
http://twistedmatrix.com/bugs would be appreciated :)
