Comment(by David Bussenschutt (aka buzz)  <davidbuzz at gmail.com>):

 Andrew A,
 I've personally had a lot of success with the win32 build script, and I
 kow that a couple of others have too, but most important is that thus is
 currently a "developer" oriented tool and is NOT reliable enough to just
 say "make me an installer", and expect it to work.   The code-base follows
 not-too-far-behind SVN HEAD (I'm trying to keep script updates under a
 week apart) , but SVN is a volatile beast, and it's even more hazardous on
 the new Win32 platform, so as will all unreleased code, YMMV.
 However, that said, this win32 script could easily for the basis for
 building -release packages (when we get to that) , in conjunction with
 something like NSIS or similar.....so now the question is "Will win32 be
 ready for the .22 release? "   I can't tell you that, as I don't know.
