[Python-Dev] Is msvcr71.dll re-redistributable?

The 2.4 python.org installer installs msvcr71.dll on the target system.

If someone uses py2exe or a similar tool to create a frozen application,
is he allowed to redistribute this msvcr71.dll to other users together
with his application or not, even if he doesn't own MSVC?

This was asked on the py2exe users list, but I could not answer this
question.  Googling for msvcr71.dll finds some site which offer to
download it, and they pretend that they are not violating any license,
but I wasn't able to find definite words from MS about that.
