Python distutil: build libraries before modules

My python modules depend on a few boost libraries. For convenience, I
include the source code of these libraries with my distribution and
treat them as standard source files. This results in huge cc.exe command
lines and I get an error saying
error: command 'cc' failed: Invalid argument
under win32/mingw. (I am not quite sure this is the reason though.)
How can I let setup.py build these boost libraries separately so that I
can link them to my modules? This will also save some link time because
all my python modules link to the same boost libraries.
Many thanks in advance.
