I believe they are completely separate targets.  I don't know much about 
cygwin, but I assume that Python built for cygwin library is linked with 
the cygwin C library and understands cygwin's fake symbolic links, while 
Python built for the mingw C library certainly does not.  Similarly, 
using ";" instead of ":" in PATH-like things is a Windows thing, while 
I'm pretty sure cygwin emulates the POSIX syntax.
