I just built and ran PyMol using Cygwin on my system

here is how I did it

make sure you have installed the latest python and the 
opengl zlib and ping Cygwin packages prior to the following

1) install Numeric
after untaring cd into top level Numeric directory and execute
python build
python install

2) install Pmw
extract tarball into /lib/python2.3/site-packages

3) Install pyMol
after untaring replace all occurrences of "python2.2" with "python2.3"  
in $pymol/setup/Rules.cygwin
in same file adjust PYMOL_PATH appropriately for your system
cd into the top level pyMol directory and issue execute
python build
python install

pymol should now be installed
