If I may, based on looking at configure, you'll need libpython2.6.dll.a
in $sysroot/usr/lib and the Python headers in
$sysroot/usr/include/python2.6, and add -I$sysroot/usr/include/python2.6
to CPPFLAGS.  (I wouldn't advise moving them straight into
$sysroot/usr/include/, their names are too generic.)

FWIW, I just added a cygwin-python package to the Fedora Cygwin repo
which should do the trick.

HTH,


Yaakov
