But could you update system_info.py from CVS and try again.

If that does not work, try setting environment variable FFTW to C:\\fftw.
I have no idea how to do that under mingw; if it is like bash, then try

FFTW=C:\\fftw python setup.py build -c mingw32

Also, you can try
and other variants that windoza may use.

Try also copying FFTW directory to C:\\usr.

If all that does not work, then I suggest you try debugging
system_info.py. I am pretty perplex (what a nice word I found in
dictonary;) about what is going on there under windoza.
