[mod_python] Building mod_python installer for Windows

I was wondering if anyone could give me tips on how to build the 
mod_python installer for Windows.

Seems that the dist subdirectory contains stuff to build it using 
distutils, but there was a comment that it should only work in Python 
2.3 because of post install scripts. Is this true? Does this affect the 
build machine only or the target machine too?

Secondly it seems to need to have had configure run. This brings up more 
general build issues. I have mingw, MSys, cygwin installed. However 
configure wants apxs which doesn't come with my Apache 2.0 build for 
Windows, and presumably I need a source tree for Apache. Do I have to 
actually build Apache for Windows, or is just the source sufficient?
