I don't have a C extension handy to try at the moment, but I haven't
had a problem in the past using mingw (--compiler=mingw32) and
python.org python 2.3.3.

Can you clarify what you are having problems with? Using python.org
python with cygwin gcc (--compiler=cygwin)? If so, I have no experience
with that, so I can't help (beyond saying that mingw works fine, so
don't break that in the process of fixing the cygwin case!)
