Thanks Roger.  

I have uploaded the patch (finally), but I ran into a few other build
issues that I'd like to share in case someone else runs into them, 
or there are better solutions than what I used.

o In, the "pre_install_script" option does not appear to be
  supported by any version of distutils I could find.  Is it a customization?
  I just commented it out to get things to build.

o The following files appear to be missing from the source distribution for
  build 201: 


  I copied these from CVS, except for PyWin32.chm, which I copied from 
  site-packages after installing build 201.

o In addition to the MS Platform SDK you need the source files from Microsoft's
  Scriptng.exe zip file.  Copy them all to: \com\win32comext\AXDebug\src
