If you do not have the right MS compiler on your machine, you can use
mingw port of gcc instead. If you use enthougths edition you already
it, else you have to install the compiler.

Passing the compiler option to f2py is easiest if you write your own
Mine look like this:

     from numpy.distutils.core import Extension
     import sys

     ext1 = Extension(name = '_module',
                      sources = ['module.pyf', "algorithm.f",])

     if __name__ == "__main__":
         from numpy.distutils.core import setup
         setup(name = 'testdmoude',
               ext_modules = [ext1,],

You can call this as follows

      python setup.py build -cmingw32

Greetings, Uwe
