Can PIL be installed under Cygwin?

Well, this appears to be a Cygwin issue.  I downloaded and ran the 
standalone Python 2.2 installer for Windows, copied the PIL files to the 
appropriate directories in the new installation, and everything worked 
right off the bat - moreover, 'import Image' works correctly; I don't 
have to use 'from PIL import Image' as I did under Cygwin.

Still, I'd be interested to know *why* PIL won't work under Cywgin's 
build of Python, if anyone happens to know. :)
