Hi David,

Thank you for the quick reply.

It looks like you did not install python correctly. I strongly recommend

Sorry, my message was ambiguous: I indeed did this, I installed python from
the cygwin installer (in cygwin you can opt to install both binary and
sources of a package. Sources are needed, I guess, if you want to compile
python modules.) So, I did not compile python myself.

I did this exactly. I even tried with the two different versions of python
available in cygwin (2.5.2 and 2.5.1 I believe). Removing the build
directory each time.

I'm really at a loss here. It apparently does not find the required library,
but everything is available in /usr/lib/python ?

Kind regards,
