My build output was:

capture_stop_conditions.c
conditions.c
dumpcap.c
pcapio.c
ringbuffer.c
Generating Code...
Linking dumpcap.exe
        link @C:\DOCUME~1\Pyramid\LOCALS~1\Temp\nmB1E.tmp
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'python27.lib'
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio
9.0\VC\BIN
\link.EXE"' : return code '0x450'
Stop.


The attached patch fixed the problem, but perhaps its not the "right" fix. 

The following comment in config.nmake points to maybe the fix being to update
directories, but I didn't see anything in wspy_libws.py that would help

# XXX The DLL path in epan/wspython/wspy_libws.py likely needs to
# be fixed before this is enabled by default.
