The documentation indicates that one can specify a compiler as in build --compiler=vc98.  I have Visual Studio VC98 C++ 6.0    vc98 doesn't work to specify the compiler.  Does anyone know how I would specify it so setup will use what I have, rather than looking for VC7.0 that was used to compile python?
