New submission from zouguangxian:

with vs 2003, msi.py get msvcr71.dll from msm. but with vs 2005, It's 
better to extract msvcr80.dll from %VCINTALLDIR%\redist\x86
\Microsoft.VC80.CRT\. In addition, it seems to extract file from 
Microsoft_VC80_CRT_x86.msm need upgrade MSI to 3.1, i am not sure.

I 'PCbuild' to 'PCbuild8' in msi.py and add extract_msvcr80, that will 
make msi.py work with vs 2005.
