I need mysql-python for python 2.3 on windows. I downloaded the source and
tried to build it myself, but I get linker errors:

mysqlclient.lib(password.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol

The problem seems to be, that the mysql lib is build with VC7, but distutils
tries to compile with VC6 (which are both on my machine). Can I force
distutils to use VC7? Or has somebody prebuild binaries for windows? Or has
somebody another hint on how to get it working on windows? I have also mingw
3.2 installed, if it would be helpfull!?
