I haven't tried this, but installing the SDK should allow you to build extensions as
well for that particular Python build. Be sure to get the SDK that belongs to vs2008,
which is this one if I'm not mistaken:

It should install a command line c/c++ compiler as well and setting the right options
will tell pip/setuptools/... to use the sdk compiler rather than visual studio.
