compiling matplotlib under cygwin

I am trying to install matplotlib-0.72.1 ( under
cygwin and its python release.

I had to modify to include the proper directories for cygwin (to
match linux)...

basedir = {
    'win32'  : ['win32_static',],
    'cygwin' : ['/usr/local', '/usr',],
    'linux2' : ['/usr/local', '/usr',],
    'linux'  : ['/usr/local', '/usr',],
    'darwin' : ['/usr/local', '/usr', '/sw', '/usr/X11R6'],
    'freebsd4' : ['/usr/local', '/usr'],
    'sunos5' : [os.getenv('MPLIB_BASE') or '/usr/local',],

The build "python build" fails with ...

creating build/temp.cygwin-1.5.12-i686-2.4/CXX
gcc -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Isrc -I.
-I/usr/include/python2.4 -c src/_na_transforms.cpp -o

initialization with status code 0x1
  11786 [main] python 2280 sync_with_child: *** child state child loading
error: Resource temporarily unavailable

What happened here? Any help in making this work?
