Can Python-2.2 on Windows be Extended using the MingW C compiler?

I'm trying to write a cross platform program using Python.

I've written an extension module in C that compiles and works on
Linux, and want to try to compile it and use it on Windows.

Does anybody know if you can take the standard Python Distribution
for Windows, and extend it using a C module that was compiled using
the free MingW C compiler?

Failing that, does anybody have any instructions for compiling Python
using the MingW compiler?
