  $ python
  Python 2.3 (#1, Aug  1 2003, 15:01:23)
  [GCC 3.2 20020927 (prerelease)] on cygwin
  Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
  >>> from distutils import sysconfig
  >>> print sysconfig.get_config_var('LIBS')

Cygwin doesn't have any libutil, so this causes problems for anything
which takes distutils' word about which libraries are needed.
http://synopsis.sf.net is one example.
