Equivalent of "make install" for Python on windows?


Oh right, and another example: 

The binary names for debug builds have a _d suffix, but modules like pip (which I assume can only be installed with get-pip.py) expect them not to have this suffix. Once I started copying lots of .exe and .lib files around just to make the distribution work I started to think I was missing something.
