Comment (by mdehoon):

 I think I found the source of this problem, though I am not yet sure about
 the best solution. In numpy/distutils/fcompiler/__init__.py, in line 685
 we have for the _default_compilers for cygwin this line:


 In numpy/distutils/fcompiler/compaq.py, on the other hand, we have

 compilers = ['CompaqFCompiler']
 if os.name != 'posix':
     # Otherwise we'd get a false positive on posix systems with
     # case-insensitive filesystems (like darwin), because we'll pick
     # up /bin/df

 Now, on Cygwin os.name is 'posix', so we only pick up CompaqFCompiler and
 not CompaqVisualFCompiler. But, in the _default_compilers above, we have
 'compaqv', which is CompaqVisualFCompiler, and not 'compaq', which is
 CompaqFCompiler. So there is an inconsistency between the two.
