Some toolchains (e.g. calibre) use a custom build system based on distutils to find the compiler tools.

For those, it is useful to have the path of nmake.exe easily discoverable.

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
