My bad - typo. The command to build numpy should have been:

C:\Python31\python setup.py bdist_wininst

i.e. the full path and filename of the program you want to run (Python3). Paths
are seperated by backslash characters, not greater than signs!

As Matthieu says, if you don't know if you have a C-compiler then you probably
don't have one.

I've got gcc installed so if I enter gcc at the command line it'll give me an
error saying that I didn't specify the input files:

gcc: no input files


if you don't have it installed (and on your path) you'll get the "not recognized
as an internal or external command" error.
