I have trouble running the tests (`runtests.py`) on Windows:

The script does not get beyond `runTest (__main__.EndToEndTest) 
End-to-end common_include_dir ...`.
Setting `nthreads = 0` in `tests/build/common_include_dir.srctree` gets 
around this but the test fails. The file also uses `ls` and `grep` which 
are not commonly found on Windows.

The file `tests/build/build_dir.srctree` uses `os.symlink()`, which is 
not available on Windows 

There are hundreds of test errors, most of kind `IOError: [Errno 24] Too 
many open files`.
The test output for 64 bit Python 2.7 with numpy 1.7.2 and msvc9 is at
