I have the MinGW compiler installed (had a previous error where I had
the compiler=mingw key in the cfg file misspelled.
I will give the newer command a go and see where I can get with it.

vcvarsall.bat is a file that comes with a Microsoft compiler. Since
you're using mingw you don't have it. The fact that it is looking
for it suggests that Python thinks it is supposed to use the
Microsoft compiler. Did you see the part of http://allmydata.org/
trac/tahoe/wiki/InstallDetails which describes how to create a
distutils config file?
Oh, also "python setup.py build_tahoe" is an obsolete command name.
The docs on InstallDetails should be updated to call that command
"python setup.py build". Also they should explain that "can't find
vcvarsall.bat" means that you need a compiler. Also they should be
improved in lots of other ways that you probably already have in
