NP, I checked the buglist on expat's sourceforge page, and the bug
and solution were already there, so I just added a comment supporting
the request for the patch to be checked in. make and make install,
and now I appear to have a functional expat under cygwin.
Then I copied pyexpat.c from the Python sources onto its own little
directory to which I added a tiny custom setup.py:
from distutils.core import setup, Extension
pyex_ext = Extension('pyexpat', sources=['pyexpat.c'],
setup (name = "pyexpat",
ext_modules = [ pyex_ext ]
and a python setup.py install built and installed it flawlessly.
I tested it, again, informally, but it seems fine.

This one is still giving me trouble, but I'll get back
to it eventually!-)
