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 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), 
could be an answer. ;)

Good luck!
