I currently try to install Zope3-4.0c1 on a windows machine, without any 
success for now.  What I need is an installation that includes basically all 
packages that are in the tarball into the python path. I tried the following:

1) Tarball: Here, install.py fails due to some compiler problems - it suggests 
to specify "-c mingw32", however, when I do so, install.py complains that it 
does not know this "-c mingw32" option. Something like "python install.py 
build_ext  -cmingw32" works, it seems that all needed packages are correctly 
compiled. When I try a "python install.py install" afterwards, it once again 
complains that it needs mingw32. So I'm stuck.

2) I tried installing it via the descriptions given here:
$ svn co svn://svn.zope.org/repos/main/z3c.formdemo/tags/1.5.1 formdemo
$ cd formdemo
$ python bootstrap.py
$ ./bin/buildout -v

This gives me some buildout error.

3) Next I tried the information from here:
svn co svn+ssh://svn.zope.org/repos/main/zope.release/branches/3.4 release-3.4
$ cd release-3.4
$ py24 bootstrap.py
$ ./bin/buildout -N

And there's once again this mingw32 problem.

4) Next, I tried zopeproject:
$ easy_install zopeproject
$ zopeproject HelloWorld

First, zopeproject does not install the packages into the Python 
site-packages, moreover, there's once again the "mingw32" problem which I'm 
unable to solve.

What can I do? Is there perhaps some precompiled Windows distribution for 
Zope-3.4 available? Or is there some trick to make things work with mingw32?
