Let me ask that again: distutils question

Thanks to you and Gerson, my Python installation is working 
again.  It fell apart because in my cygwin .bashrc I set 
PYTHONHOME=/usr but /usr/bin/python was a symbolic link to 
c:/python21/python.exe .  All I had to do was get rid of the 
PYTHONHOME assignment in the .bashrc file.
