What's wrong with the Python wiki link in msg263206 above? It is supposed to be _the_ guide for setting up compilers in Windows, isn't it?

Ideally, this should be a link to `distutils' docs - because, you know, the wiki isn't carved in stone, either, while the docs for the specific version are bundled with it.

Actually, `distutils' does have an entry on `distutils.msvccompiler': . It even documents the use of DUSTUTILS_USE_SDK variable!
The wording could use some clarification and maybe a link to wiki, but that's for another ticket.
