I used the default installation, but it failed first time around (perhaps a 
network thing) and I stupidly assumed 'repair' would work.

After a full reinstallation at least vcvarsall is present and  I can at least 
get the amd64/x86 compilers to work with bdist_wheel (I didn't get any errors 
from using my already compiled relocatable libs) and I can no build the open 
source reportlab extensions.

One simple extension

https://bitbucket.org/rptlab/pyrxp

doesn't get built. For some reason I get a hang in the linker for both amd64 & 
x86. This builds fine for 27, 33 & 34.


However, I see this in the output

so there are some warnings which I don't understand. Maybe I need to do 
something special for pyRXP (possibly I have some ifdefs poorly configured).
