I haven't built any python stuff with cygwin (too bad there isn't a
python-dev package, that would certainly make it easier), but I have
built glib, gtk+, and gvim (with GTK+) on cygwin (with XFree86)
without difficulty.



There are six things the Lord hates,
    seven that are detestable to him :
        haughty eyes,
        a lying tongue,
        hands that shed innocent blood,
        a heart that devises wicked schemes,
        feet that are quick to rush into evil,
        a false witness who pours out lies
        and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.

    Proverbs 6:16-19
