Ahh, ok. I tried installing MingW as per last comment at
http://slacy.com/blog/2010/09/python-unable-to-find-vcvarsall-bat/ but that
fails with "unrecognized command line option '-mno-cygwin'". As adding cygwin to
the environment where I was looking to use pudb is too much I'll abandon this
effort for now. 

Here's console log in the event it's helpful to someone else:

B:\apps\urwid-1.0.0>python setup.py build --compiler=mingw32
running build
running build_py
running build_ext
building 'urwid.str_util' extension
c:\MinGW\bin\gcc.exe -mno-cygwin -mdll -O -Wall
-IC:\o4w_py27\apps\Python27\include -IC:\o4w_py27\apps\Python27\PC -c
source/str_util.c -o build\temp.win32-2.7\Release\source\str_util.o
cc1.exe: error: unrecognized command line option '-mno-cygwin'
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

thanks for your help,
