I suspect there's something else wrong in the build procedure requiring dumpcap
to be built with the Python library; if so, that's what needs to be fixed. 
dumpcap has no dissectors and no taps, so it doesn't need the Python library.

It's odd that it's saying

    LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'python27.lib'

which doesn't appear to be a "you forgot to link with the Python library"
error, it appears to be a "I'm trying to link with the Python library but not
finding it".  Maybe the MS linker is just putting out a crappy error message
here, but....
