The only environment variables that don't appear in the shell output from the env command are INFOPATH, MAKE_MODE and PLAT. I am still flummoxed. At this point, I'd recommend to perform a cygwin update; with Cygwin, these problems often go away with an update.
I updated Cygwin and did a rebaseall before posting.
If that doesn't help, you can ask on the Cygwin list also; to analyse this further, ISTM one will need to debug the internals of cygwin.
I posted on Cygwin before asking here.
One thing you could try is to add -v to the list of gcc options; you can then see whether gcc is progressing correctly.
I'll do that, though I have reason to believe the gcc is terminating and _spawn_posix isn't detecting the end of the process. At the very least we should get another test out of this dreadfully irritating bug.
Thanks again for looking at this.
A further data point (sorry, I've not had a lot of time to look at this). Building Python from the trunk at rev 57076 yielded a system that would cleanly build the same release of PIL. This is somewhat annoying because it appears to put the bug in the past where there's less incentive to investigate it. But I may find time to take a look.
Hardly worth it if I'm the only one noticing the issue, though.
