I know that you have to have the right version, what's not clear is why you're
getting this error? When I build pyRXP etc etc with a specific python setup.py
figures out which compiler is needed and seems to use the right one.
I have all three versions of the compiler installed so can build with
python2.3-2.6. Presumably you're trying to use a python that requires 2003 or
mingw. Is that the problem? There's nothing special about the pyRXP setup.py so
far as I know. Have you tried removing the build dir and re-running?
