I have visual studio 2005 installed, and a binary of python that was
built against visual studio 2003.
when I try to install pyRXP 1.13-20080402, i get this message:

$ python setup.py install
running install
running build
running build_ext
error: Python was built with Visual Studio 2003;
extensions must be built with a compiler than can generate compatible binari
Visual Studio 2003 was not found on this system. If you have Cygwin installe
you can try compiling with MingW32, by passing "-c mingw32" to setup.py.

is there another -c option for visual studio 2005? Or what are the
steps for building the binary module from source?
