I have tried with numpy 1.1.1 and made some progress that actually
something did build this time. :) I did the same trick when I was
building PIL.

set MSSDK=1
python setup.py build (without site.cfg)

and there is no more this error message:
error: Python was built with Visual Studio version 9, and extensions
need to be built with the same version of the compiler, but it isn't

The build log is in attachment. Now I just have to see about this
error message I'm getting, "don't know how to compile Fortran code on
platform 'nt'".

If you are willing to try I can send you my Python25_VC9 installation
so you can try with it? BTW, thanks for your help so far!

Second try:
The attach was over 40 KB, this is ziped one.

Best regards,
