I'll try to add a 2.4 binary to the next ctypes release, although I'm
not completely sure that bdist_wininst works with 2.4. IIRC, I had some
problems using bdist_wininst with the now current zlib 1.2.1.
I could do the same for pywin32 (although I don't have the more exotic
SDK's installed, and I don't build autoduck docs).
But I cannot help with the other extensions you mention.
