[reportlab-users] New machine, install problems

Old machine overheating, so time for a new one. Installed Python 3.5.0.

Need to install reportlab. "pip install reportlab" worked somewhat, 
downloading both reportlab and pillow, but then failed:

     running build_ext
     building 'reportlab.lib._rl_accel' extension
     error: [WinError 2] The system cannot find the file specified

Probably my first use of pip. No clue what file cannot be found.

Wild guess... I didn't see any comments about Python 3.5.0 on the 
reportlab site: does reportlab not yet support Python 3.5.0 ?

Well, Googling is a little better than wild guessing, I found this 
thread <http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/python/python/1219575>, 
but it seems to be talking about compiling reportlab rather than 
installing it. I thought one point of pip and .whl format was to provide 
precompiled stuff?
