While I don't, a useful debugging aid here is the -v/-vv switch
to the Python interpreter. If you start python with -vv, you'll
get the most verbose output showing exactly where the interpreter
is trying to find your module (and every other module it needs
to get going). You'd best redirect the output to a log file,
but it can be very helpful:

python -vv -c "import pymssql" 2> temp.log
grep pymssql temp.log

(or open it in an editor or whatever).

The -v switch gives less output, but isn't as useful if
the import fails.
