PyCrypto's install is giving an autoconf error on Windows, whether I
install from the git repo or normally.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python27\lib\distutils\", line 972, in run_command

  File "C:\Projects\satchmo_test\satchmo_test\src\pycrypto\",
line 274, in run
    raise RuntimeError("autoconf error")

RuntimeError: autoconf error

Command C:\Python27\python.exe -c "import setuptools;
exec(compile(open(__file__).read().replace('\r\n', '\n'), __file__,
'exec'))" develop --no-deps failed with error code 1
Full output:

How can I get PyCrypto to install?

Thanks for all suggestions,

Alec Taylor
