It was unclear from my previous message that I am using the commands under the heading
     Building a Python Module
in the tutorial
with the exception that python2.7 was changed to python3.8 because that is the version of python on 
my cygwin system.

These commands work fine on my Fedora system (with the proper version of python and without any 
extra libraries specified).
