[XML-SIG] Can't compile pyxml 0.8.4 with cygwin / windows

I haven't been able to compile PyXML 0.8.4 for python 2.5 on my
windows xp box, with a cygwin and mingw I just installed over the
weekend.  It looks like the compile is complaining about not finding
things like io.h, which are installed in cygwin.  On linux I'd use
ldconfig and ld.so.conf, but that apparently isn't how cygwin works.

I tried following the tutorial for Amara as described by this post
but I haven't had any change in my errors.  I basically get errors
that start like this:

In file included from c:/python25/include/Python.h:8,
                 from extensions/pyexpat.c:5:
c:/python25/include/pyconfig.h:57:16: io.h: No such file or directory
c:/python25/include/pyconfig.h:251:20: stdio.h: No such file or directory
In file included from /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-cygwin/3.4.4/include/syslimits.h:7,
                 from /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-cygwin/3.4.4/include/limits.h:11,
                 from c:/python25/include/Python.h:18,
                 from extensions/pyexpat.c:5:
/usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-cygwin/3.4.4/include/limits.h:122:61: limits.h: No such file or directory

Does anyone have any tips for fixing this?  My end goal is to be able
to use ZSI 2.0 for some SOAP I need to interact with, but I haven't
been able to get past the PyXML requirement for it yet.

Best regards,
