Traits includes an extension module. You will need a suitable
compiler.

  http://www.develer.com/oss/GccWinBinaries

To tell distutils to use this compiler for all extension modules,
create pydistutils.cfg file with the following contents:

  [build_ext]
  compiler=mingw32

See this page for details about this file:

  http://docs.python.org/inst/config-syntax.html

You will get the most help about Traits and the rest of the Enthought
Tool Suite on the enthought-dev mailing list.
