New submission from Paul Moore <p.f.moore at gmail.com>:
The latest version of Mingw binutils, 126.96.36.19980109, uses a 4-part
version number which distutils does not like (StrictVersion only allows
for 3 parts).
The attached patch fixes this, simply by using LooseVersion (the version
number has already been checked to be a series of numbers in the regex
check just previous).
Can this be fixed for 2.6/3.0, as it is likely that the new binutils
will become common while these versions of Python are current?
