[pygtk] PyGTK 2.17 for Windows

I'm trying to get a PyGTK app going on a Windows XP installation. It
requires PyGTK 2.17. I have Python 2.6 and GTK 2.18 set up just fine,
but of course there's no binary installer for PyGTK 2.17. So I grabbed
the source from FTP, along with PyGObject, intending to build it
But it turns out I need PyGI to build PyGObject, and PyGI requires
"Python development tools" to build, and searching the web for that
problem yields nothing useful.
So before I embark on some odyssey of pain trying to get this all to
work, my question is: is there an easier way? A binary installer for
PyGI for Windows? A binary installer for PyGTK 2.17?
Please keep me CCd on replies.
PS. By the way, I usually work on a Debian Squeeze/Sid system, with
PyGTK 2.17.0 (installed from Debian repo). I thought maybe I could
take the 2.17 tarball and build it somewhere in my home dir, but:
~/Projects/python-virt2/pygobject-2.21.4$ ../bin/python setup.py build
--compiler=mingw32 --enable-threading --yes-i-know-its-not-supported
Error: distutils build only supported on windows
