All builds of PythonCE2.2+ are compiled with eVC.

I'm not sure at all if you can build with gcc.
Probably, you may need to modify Python source code, too.

But if you can make it, that may eliminate some
MicroSoft specific problems.

I'm a little fed up with MS marketing strategy and
thinking about buying Linux PDA.
Then I can forget about lots of rather stupid problems.
