What is this, and how can I get rid of it?

$ python setup.py build -c mingw32
running build
running build_py
running build_ext
error: Python was built with version 6 of Visual Studio, and extensions 
need to
be built with the same version of the compiler, but it isn't installed.

I had no problems building these extensions on Python 2.2 following the 
instructions at http://sebsauvage.net/python/mingw.html .   I did the 
same thing substituting 2.3 for 2.2, and got the message above.

Why doesn't it work any more?  --compiler=mingw32 is still valid on the 
command line.
