Building Python 2.4 extensions with the Microsoft Toolkit Compiler

I've put together a page describing how to build Python 2.4 extensions 
with the free (as in beer, not libre) Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 
compiler.  So far I've been able to build Numpy 23.1, PyOpenGL, 
OpenGLContext 2.0.0b2 and mxTextTools-nr against Python 2.4a1, and they 
seem to be working fine.  I'm very interested in other developers who 
want to try building with this combination giving feedback on what needs 
to be done to make the instructions clearer and/or more comprehensive.

Have fun,
