[Numpy-discussion] Problem building from svn under cygwin

I have the latest cygwin environment and am using gcc 3.4.4. to build numpy.

Configure works:

    python setup.py configure --compiler=mingw32

Build fails:

    python setup.py build --compiler=mingw32

While building numpy.random.mtrand I get this:

    _configtest.c:7:2: #error No _WIN32


and a little bit later the build aborts completely on multiarray with this:

building 'numpy.core.multiarray' extension

or directory

I am puzzled, because /usr/include/sys/select.h actually does exist on 
my cygwin installation.  But maybe that's not what pyport.h is actually 
looking for???

I've been banging away at this for several hours, so I must be doing 
something silly.  Any help will be much appreciated. 

Thanks!
