Re: Building a win32 python extension from cygwin?

It is mainly limited to building the readline module every year or so
when the next major version of Python is released...
BTW, you may have better luck on the Python or Distutils list.

Are you using the --compiler=mingw32 option? For example:
$ python setup.py build --compiler=mingw32
