The problem has two causes:
- IOError is raised when no compiler is found. DistutilsPlatformError
should be used instead, this was fixed by #4702.

- the distutils.util.grok_environment_error function transforms a
IOError("Unable to find vcvarsall.bat") into "error: None".

This function should not be used IMO. Its docstring claims that it
"Handles Python 1.5.1 and 1.5.2 styles", but str() does a better job...

Patch attached.
