I don't understand why our technique for finding the python dll works
for mingw but not for cygwin, but you can probably just override this

make install PYTHON_LIBS='-L"C:/Program Files/Python24/libs" -lpython24'

That's assuming that libtool copes with the space, as it doesn't always
cope with pathnames with spaces.  If that causes a problem, I guess you
can symlink it from a safer path and use that in the -L.
