Last I looked, which was half a year ago, there was some Python 3 
porting of Kivy underway, as you found yourself. If I were you, I would 
get on IRC (I think it was #kivy on irc.freenode.net) and try to contact 
the people there about the state of the Python 3 port. Just have some 
patience, there aren't hundreds of people (yet), so getting an answer 
could take some time.

'msvcr100' is the C runtime of MS Visual C++, I'm not sure if it is 
required for building Python modules on MS Windows. Just removing it 
from the commandline (or makefile) should tell you already. 
Alternatively, ask The Internet(R), http://bugs.python.org/issue15315 
could be an answer. ;)

Good luck!
