[Python-Dev] Non-Visual Studio builds on Windows XP?

I'm probably missing something obvious, but what can I use to interpret 
the vcproj build files?

The free toolkit only seems to contain the compiler and the linker, 
neither of which has a clue about .vcproj or .sln files.

And MinGW needs a normal make file, rather than the Microsoft custom 

Any pointers to more info would be appreciated. . .

(If no-one else is trying to do this, my next step will be to write my 
own .vcproj -> makefile Python script to get something I can feed to 
MinGW, since my Google searches haven't turned up anything useful. I'd 
just hate to do that unnecessarily)
