When working on the docs for new_compiler, I read that it was possible to get an msvc compiler on Unix.  I tried it, even wrote a unit test to make sure it worked, and found out that not all compiler classes can be instantiated on my platform.  This should be better documented.

Distutils is now deprecated (see PEP 632) and all tagged issues are being closed. From now until removal, only release blocking issues will be considered for distutils.

If this issue does not relate to distutils, please remove the component and reopen it. If you believe it still requires a fix, most likely the issue should be re-reported at
