I'm building it with custom Python (built with VS 2008) on Win32. It is
a lot for me but I just have to do it and learn as much as posible
during the process. I'm building it with MKL becuase I followed the
instructions from website.

I haven't tried building it without MKL because I don't know how. :( As
I followed the instructions I tried to build it directly with MKL. I can
try it tomorrow at work and post a log. Would you be so kind and tell
what is the proper way to build it without MKL?

32-bit numpy. Everything I'm building for now is 32-bit (Python, PIL,
numpy, ...) on 32-bit Windows. If you need any more information please
let me know and I will post them.

Thanks for your answer!
