I tested this out and found that while buildslave is installed in the
Scripts directory, it still doesn't work for me. I tried running the
buildslave script directly:

D:\buildbot-slave-0.8.1-rc2>python c:\Python26\Scripts\buildslave
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "c:\Python26\Scripts\buildslave", line 4, in <module>
    import pkg_resources
  File "c:\Python26\lib\site-packages\setuptools-0.6c9-py2.6.egg\pkg_resources.p
y", line 2562, in <module>
  File "c:\Python26\lib\site-packages\setuptools-0.6c9-py2.6.egg\pkg_resources.p
y", line 626, in require
  File "c:\Python26\lib\site-packages\setuptools-0.6c9-py2.6.egg\pkg_resources.p
y", line 524, in resolve
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: buildbot-slave==0.8.1-rc2

I compared this to running buildbot 0.8.0's script directly, which worked fine.

The corresponding bat file is also still missing. This is easy enough
to fix and I can submit a patch for that, but I don't understand why
easy_install thinks buildbot-slave is not installed. I did notice that
it now installs an egg file instead of the extracted egg in a
directory under site-packages.
