I can feel your pain beeing dragged into 
compile-unknown-source-on-windows from an innocent looking python script 
;) This time it's not the linker complaining but GCC (the compiler) 
itself not being able to find the header file GL/glew.h. Headers are 
searched in the so called "include path" which is specified in 
This link suggests glew.h is 
part of VisualStudio, and has some other interesting information.
