Hi I have used both M$ VC++ 6.0 professional and the mingw stuff which
comes with Dev-C++ http://sourceforge.net/projects/dev-cpp/.

I seem to remember having to set up the distutils compiler to point to
the right place for the latter to work.

There's a reference somewhere on the web about how to get the symbols
you need for the python import lib for the mingw stuff.
