The page is outdated, and there is a script in 
tools/win32build/misc/msvcrt90 (yop.sh - I should change it to a real 
name) to do it. You need cygwin as well to do it.

But I suspect you won't be able to do much: if you build numpy with 
visual studio and say Intel Fortran compiler, you won't be able to use 
gfortran with it. Last time I looked at it, there were numerous issues 
because of C runtime clashes between the MS runtime and libgfortran - I 
think the only solution would be to rewrite our own libgfortran and 
compile it with the MS compiler so that they all use the same C runtime.
