PyCrypto builds neither with MSVC nor MinGW

PIL, PyCrypto and many other modules require a C compiler and linker.

Unfortunately neither install on my computer, with a PATH with the following:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC

Output from G:\pycrypto>vcvarsall.bat
Setting environment for using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 x86 tools.

Error output from G:\pycrypto>python build --compiler msvc

Error output from G:\pycrypto>python build --compiler mingw32
1> log1 2> log2

Will there ever be support for newer MSVC versions? - Also, why
doesn't even MinGW install PyCrypto for me?

Thanks for all suggestions,

Alec Taylor
