I also had the unresolved externals problem (not the mdir.h problem, though)
and my solution was different.
a) reinstall correct python2.6.4, using an Intel-flavor msi vice
b) source the c:\program files(x86\microsoft visual studio
and shazzaaaam the pycrypto build + install worked fine.
My CPU is Intel not AMD so I apparently had a bogus python install.
