As far as I understand, there should be only one runtime library
involved. MinGW relies on the Microsoft runtime. It seems some
people have had problems using MSVCRT71 with MinGW, but I'm sure
that e.g. the Enthought people can explain those issues, since they
bundle MinGW in their Python 2.4 distribution.
