I don't think there's any equivalent for Windows without buying 3rd party addons (not an acceptable alternative). It would be easy to implement using os.path.walk(); I'm sure an interested Windows-bound reader of this group could contribute such a beast.
Oh, one comment on the idea of separate MANIFESTs for source and binary distributions: no. The binary distribution should be built from the 'build' directory; the whole point of that directory is to make installation and the generation of binary (err, built) distributions
