There are two approaches.

1. Modify distutils so that it invokes Embedded VC (or whatever
    compiler you need to use); this would be useful for all
    distutils-based extensions. You would use this technique then

    python setup.py build --compiler=evc4 (or some other name you
    come up with)

2. Manually invoke the compiler. Run setup.py build with MSVC6,
    and check what compiler invocations are performed, with what
    command line options. Then perform the same invocations
    manually, replacing cl.exe appropriately.
