I generally setup the registry, by adding an "InstallPath" key. Most
extensions then work correctly, including distutils. Now that we have the
"_winreg" module, we should include a simple script you can run to setup
everything you need.
FYI, all you should need is:
* "pydir" is the path to main Python directory - ie, parent of "PCBuild",
* The "2.3" is actually available in sys.winver
* The "PythonPath" entry is generally not needed, except in embedding
situations where the Python DLL isn't in the main Python build directory.
