Thanks for the build logs. Very useful and I can now build the whole of 
python with the free microsoft tools and GNU make.

It appears that you still have a dependency on 'largeint.lib' in 
pythoncore. This is no longer required and the largeint.h was removed a 
in the move to VS.NET. (I think) When I remove it by hand editing the 
file python still builds. Can you update the project files in cvs.
