Hi all

Since my last correspondance with Jason I have tested this with
the 'stock'  Python-2.1 tarball and all seems to be OK

I am experiencing an occasional 'hang' in the make process
this is on WIn2k sp2 and the 'very latest' Cygwin files.
Usually a 'ctrl-C' will abort the make and a subsequent make
will  run to completion.  This make behaviour is not isolated to the
Python build but I have not been able to find a situation that will
reliably reproduce it.
