Not even VS71COMNTOOLS? This one should be there, because in 7.1
vcvars32.bat will not work without this variable.

When did it start happening? About a month ago I submitted patch which
was supposed to improve automatic compiler discovery. It was rather
innocent change -- use %ProgramFiles% if available (otherwise fallback
to c:\Program Files), use VS71COMNTOOLS for 7.1 if possible.

Does it fail for all 3 versions of msvc? What are the values of
%ProgramFiles% and %VS71COMNTOOLS% on your system (if present).

Does "fails to call vcvars.32" means it does not even try to call?
