Mark's reference seems more directed at designers of the compilation steps for
the extension. From Zachary's comment it seems I should be able to build with
distutils without too much trouble.
However, I try to link bits of various libraries statically into the reportlab
extensions eg freetype.lib. Does anyone know if I will need separate versions of
those for VS2015? Currently I build with distutils for Python 27, 33 & 34.
Currently the .libs seem OK with both 2.7 & >=3.3 builds, but I notice from the
reference that all the code for VS2015 needs to be built with specific options
set, so will I need separate versions of the relocatable libs?
