I'm with you man, I don't feel like building Python myself either. I
have asked the appropriate list
about this problem. I also tried using distutils from CVS instead of
the bundled copy with Python 2.3, and no luck.
There won't be an official Python 2.3 build of Twisted for Windows until
this is resolved, as I don't have MSVC and don't intend to buy a copy.
mingw should work.
In the meantime, you should know that you can get by without the
extensions. Just do
$ python setup.py install --skip-build
You won't get cbanana or _c_urlarg, the only extensions built for windows.
