Unfortunately, the code for our building process is difficult to grasp -
there is a lof of magic. Everything is in numpy/distutils. Basically,
you need to create a new compiler, a bit like intelccompiler.py, but for
Windows. I unfortunately can't help you more ATM, since I don't know the
intel compiler on Windows.
