On my system, I just grabbed copies of MSO9.DLL and MSOUTL9.OLB from an
old installation of Outlook 2K and registered them with regsvr32 on my
Outlook 2003 system.  That installed the two type libraries that
SpamBayes is looking for.  Now everything builds without errors and
creates the right genpy interface GUIDs when I run py2exe.  Haven't
actually installed and run the binary on an OL2K system to verify
operation, though.
