[Python-Dev] trunk buildbot status

I'd recommend cd'ing to your trunk root directory and running Tool\buildbot\build.bat from there -- it'll automatically check out all the dependencies and build via command line with vcbuild (building via Visual Studio usually always Does The Right Thing, command line builds often take a bit more coercing).

> Can someone check a clean trunk build on a Windows system that *only* has Visual C++ Express 2008?  The latest build system updates don't rely on any features of Visual Studio Professional, but the tools use a lot of common files, and perhaps a Service Pack needs to be applied or something.

I just built the trunk on a Windows XP x86 box that only has Visual C++
Express 2008 installed.  I got a bunch of errors with sqlite, tcl,
db-4.4.20, and ssl, but the interpreter built and appears to run ok.

But since I don't have bsddb installed, I don't think I'm executing the
portion of the build process that you find failing.

I don't have time to install bsddb tonight, but I can do that in about
24 hours if you still need me to.
