How to make py2.5 distutil to use VC2005?

    This problem have puzzled me for a long time. I usually use
python2.5 in Windows, while VC2005 is installed.
However python25.lib is compiled by VC2003. When I use disutil to
build some C extensions, it complaints that
there is no VC2003.
    Well, IMO, the format of binary files generated by VC2003 and
VC2005 is compatible in most cases. What
should I do to workaround this error? I mean, disable distutil
complaints and use VC2005 to build C extensions.
I have google-ed some discussion related on this topic. It seems that
it's real possible!
    Thank you in advance.
