[Python-3000] building _ssl on Windows

I just saw the addition of the _ssl module:

I modified PCBuild8/pcbuild.sln to add the project to the solution file
(by hand: my version of vc2005 also changes everything in the file)

Now, is it really necessary to install perl in order to compile python?
I managed to avoid it until today :-(

Also note that the openssl distribution proposed in PCBuild8/readme.txt:
svn export http://svn.python.org/projects/external/openssl-0.9.8a
does not compile out of the box with vc2005.
The usual _CRT_NONSTDC_NO_DEPRECATE macro is missing...
