Are you _sure_ that using gcc won't work for you? After a lengthy,
complex and not completely successful attempt to use the (free)
Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit Compiler per the Python 2.4 Extensions w/
the MS Toolkit Compiler instructions , I switched to using the
Mingw/MSYS approach . Works well for 2.4, should work for 2.5 as
far as I can see.
