So far, PyCrypto doesn't build on Win64.  [..] it seems to be a bug in Python distutils,

Correct, there's an issue with the distutils when using VC++ 2008 Express. It works fine with Pro.

I compiled pycrypto 2.3.1 on Win7-64 with python2.7.1-64. "setup.py test" was successful. Are there further unit tests that could be run to verify that pycrypto works well on x64 and this issue has now been laid to rest?

The steps I took to compile can be found here: https://yorickdowne.wordpress.com/2010/12/22/compiling-pycrypto-on-win7-64/
