I'll leave others to comment on whether or not
it's expected to build with VS2005, but the easiest
way to get a debug build is to pretend to be a buildbot.

1) Check out the python source into, say, c:\dev\python

svn co http://svn.python.org/projects/python/trunk c:\dev\python

2) Switch to that directory

cd \dev\python

3) Pretend to be a buildbot


This will checkout all the necessary sources into, in my
example, c:\dev. It will then run all the build steps
necessary to get a debug build which will then be in
