No it was complete but use SCons. Most of changes changes in code you 
will see again in 3871.

This is again request and the patch is for trunk. It share common idea with
841454:Cross building python for mingw32:Andreas Ames (yxcv):2003-11-13 
1006238:Cross compile patch:Daniel Goertzen (goertzen):2004-08-09 22:05

No. It share common changes to code with 841454, 1006238, 1412448, 
1597850. May be 1597850 and 3871 supercede 1412448.

The issue3871 raise questions (and include solution/work around) related to:
2942 - mingw/cygwin do not accept asm file as extension source
2445 - Use The CygwinCCompiler Under Cygwin
1706863 - Failed to build Python 2.5.1 with sqlite3

Also issues related to LDFLAGS:
4010 - configure options don't trickle down to distutils
1628484 - Python 2.5 64 bit compile fails on Solaris 10/gcc 4.1.1
