I have never tried cygwin but it is basically gcc (right?) and therefore
I did not see any reasons why f2py generated code would fail on
cygwin. However, it seems that I need to let f2py to put lines like 477
above to init<module> () block. But if there is a way to use macros please
let me know - the fix will be certainly simpler for me.

Meanwhile I suggest manually moving the initializations with Py_None to
the function flapackmodule(). (I am not sure when I am able to fix f2py
as it will not be trivial).
