In these cases, maybe we should supply snapshots that already have 
configure built? (this is a topic I have hinted at over in HTTPD land 
too.)  Snapshots that don't have ./configure already built are pretty 
much worthless.

And if it was all in python, it means the Release Manager could build 
the .zip file for win32 releases all from one environment...
