I'm getting linker errors when trying to install PyCrypto on Windows:

C:\libraries\MinGW\bin\gcc.exe -mno-cygwin -shared -s
build\\Release\src\winrandom.def -LC:\Python27\libs
-LC:\Python27\PCbuild\amd64 -lws2_32 -ladvapi32 -lpython27 -lmsvcr90
-o "C:\Projects\satchmo_test\Prototype\src\pycrypto\lib\Crypto\Random\OSRNG\winrandom.pyd"

Full output:

How can I resolve installation issues to get PyCrypto install properly
on Python 2.7.2 x64?

Thanks for all suggestions,

Alec Taylor
