vcvarsall.bat is part of Microsoft's compiler, which I'm told you can 
download at no cost.

Python modules are supposed to be built using the same compiler and stdlib 
as was used to build Python itself.  However, you should be able to use 
mingw32 (which is a Windows port of gcc) for PyCrypto.  That's all I've 
ever tested PyCrypto with on Windows, anyway. :)
