I had to add amd64 because scons looks in that list what compiler supports.
If it finds Express then scons exits before even tries to compile Blender.
Officially VC++ 2008 Express doesn't like x64 and OPENMP but I have
figured out how to enable support for both. Now, with help of cmake I can
build 32 or 64bit but only from VC++ IDE since scons throws me those linking

Yes, I have and use 64bit python 2.6.6

Files libfaac-0.dll, libfaad-2.dll, libmp3lame-0.dll, libx264-67.dll and
xvidcore.dll are still missing in repositories.
