Hi all,
I'd like to build the latest scipy and the core package on a windows xp machine.
I have installed on it :
 mkl (the latest version from intel)
 intel fortran compiler (evaluation version from intel)

After retrieving the last scipy/trunk with svn, I did as, usual, in the core
 python setup.py build

Here, I got a build error. Mainly, distutil couldn't find my fortran copiler,
mkl lib and the python24.lib file. The last message I got is

ERROR: Failed to test configuration.

I think that there's some environment variable that are not set correctly. I
someone could give me more explanation it would be helpufull.
