I was going to offer to provide pre-built binaries in my previous email,
but I thought that it would be considered presumptuous without waiting
to see if the patch would be accepted.

There are also other issues regarding the usefulness of the pre-built

    1. Cygwin python-ldap is *not* a Mingw (i.e., straight Win32) binary
       and requires Cygwin's cygwin1.dll to run
    2. Cygwin python-ldap requires Cygwin Python to be built with a DLL core
       (similar to Win32 Python)

Additionally, I was hoping to store the pre-built binary on

since my public web space is currently very limited.

Nevertheless, I can provide the following packages that are installable
with Cygwin's setup.exe:

    python-ldap-1.10alpha3-1.tar.gz: Cygwin python-ldap
    python-20001116-1.tar.gz:        Cygwin Python 2.0 with DLL core
    openldap-1.2.11-1.tar.gz:        Cygwin OpenLDAP 1.2.11 clients and libs

Only the first one above is required.  The other two are offered for
convenience only -- it makes more sense for them to be contributed to
the Cygwin project instead.
