Yes. I have python 2.5 installed using Setup.exe. In debian I had the
same issue with python enabled GDB. But I could solve it by installing
the python2.5-dev development packages. I had a look at the files
included in cygwin package (you mentioned) and the files in
python2.5-dev deb package:

The observation is that python static library (in case of linux- in /usr/lib/) is missing in cygwin and that is exactly
what gcc is complaining when building gdb (please refer to the config
log in my previous post). I dont know whether this is handled
differently in cygwin. Please give your suggestions.
