I was able to successfully build from the sources. Thanks a lot for all your help. I can share the exe if its useful to someone. Let me know.

Once again thanks to all lxml team members for the support.

Following sources were used for the same.

Failing that, you can try and see if you can get anything working for you
with the libraries built here:
