Be sure to speak up if it doesn't!  Any build that invokes the C
compiler often on Windows would have the same problem.

Don't think it's needed on HEAD.  As the checkin comment said:

    This doesn't appear to be an issue on the HEAD (MSVCCompiler initializes
    itself via __init__() on the HEAD).

I verified by building Zope with unaltered HEAD too, and had no
problem with that.
