No compiler needed, I've always built the releases on Linux boxes
(Fedora before, Ubuntu as of late).  Have a look in the tools/
directory for little shell scripts that show how the targets are
built; the windows one is just

./setup.py bdist_wininst --install-script=ipython_win_post_install.py

Let us know if you run into trouble...
