You're correct. I built python with cygwin. Thanks for the clue.

What Python are you using? It looks like you built Python 2.5 using cygwin (that
is, the UNIX emulation layer). You cannot build your extensions with mingw32 in
that case. Don't use --compiler at all and you will be fine.
If you are using the regular Python binaries, then you should be using
--compiler=mingw32, but you're getting the wrong Python headers in that case.
