Hi all, 
  For some reason, I have to develop my software with mingw under windows. First of all, I need python installed in the msys but I try all my ways to install 2.6.x, 2.7.x, 3.2.x and 3.3.0, no one succeed. I search all issues and google the related information online, it seems that it doesn't support python on mingw? But what stranger is there are a few posts here with the patch presented, so is there any way to make the source compiled in mingw? I try all the available patches but again, it didn't solve the problem. Here are the error messages when I try to compile the 3.3.0 in mingw, 

  ./configure              ---> no problem
  make                     ---> errors shown below
  Objects/exceptions.c:2527:5: error: 'EALREADY' undeclared (first use in this function)
  Objects/exceptions.c:2527:5: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in
  Objects/exceptions.c:2528:5: error: 'EINPROGRESS' undeclared (first use in this function)
  Objects/exceptions.c:2529:5: error: 'EWOULDBLOCK' undeclared (first use in this function)
  Objects/exceptions.c:2532:5: error: 'ESHUTDOWN' undeclared (first use in this function)
  Objects/exceptions.c:2536:5: error: 'ECONNABORTED' undeclared (first use in this function)
  Objects/exceptions.c:2538:5: error: 'ECONNREFUSED' undeclared (first use in this function)
  Objects/exceptions.c:2540:5: error: 'ECONNRESET' undeclared (first use in this function)
  Objects/exceptions.c:2557:5: error: 'ETIMEDOUT' undeclared (first use in this function)
  make: *** [Objects/exceptions.o] Error 1

I then try compiling the version 2.7.3, different errors were shown while 'make'

  ./Modules/posixmodule.c:6151:5: warning: implicit declaration of function 'wait'[-Wimplicit-function-declaration]
  ./Modules/posixmodule.c: In function 'posix_fdopen':

  ./Modules/posixmodule.c:8387:1: warning: 'setup_confname_table' defined but not used [-Wunused-function]
  make: *** [Modules/posixmodule.o] Error 1

I highly appreciate it if you could show me any hints in compiling the
python in mingw.
