Unfortunately I was swayed by Norman's exuberance and responded without
actually testing myself.  I now see that Python hangs when trying to
build the standard extension modules during the build (which uses the
newly built python executable).  I will try to supply useful details as
soon as I get a chance.

In off-list email with Norman, it was ascertained that he is not using a
stock Python 2.1 source tree.  Norman, feel free to supply your findings
-- it may be helpful for Rob to track down some of the remain problems.

Nevertheless, I still appreciate Rob and Greg's efforts to fill out
Cygwin's pthreads support.
