If you look in the BBv2 mailing list archives, either Alexey Pakunov or
Andre Melnikov (can't remember which) provided some logic to add this
support. That stuff also contains things like midl support that has been
added in.

Essentially, this boils down to calling setenv.bat from the Platform SDK
directory to set the various directory values. It is a little more
complicated than that.

If you can wait, it is coming :), however, if you need it sooner, you can
try integrating the changes into the BBv2 CVS on your local machine. Several
things have changed since then, so you will need to do some work to make it
do what you want.
