Apparently Andreas was trying to compile Python using the *native* win32
GNU toolset, aka mingw (minimalist GNU for Windows). This isn't
currently possible, though I know of several people who have expressed
interest and/or are currently working on this (that includes me).

It is. Building Python sources with Cygwin is something that works out
of the box.
