This issue is derived from issue1706863.

Can you produce a patch?

I used to create the patch
http://bugs.python.org/file11597/experimental_distutils.patch
in #1706863, but cygwin guys wanted this code implemented
in CCygwinCompiler class (See #2445).

I think #2445 should be resolved before.

Can you port that patch? I don't have cygwin installed now.

Okay, let’s reach a conclusion on the other bug before getting back to this one.

Move version to 3.7 and 2.7, and I updated two patches adding import library type for file searching.

Current Cygwin is used UnixCCompiler, and the compiler has be able to build extension module that doesn't need to library link at build time (e.g. array).  And CygwinCCompiler has supported old version compilers, but its haven't maintained on Current Cygwin any longer.  Therefore I think there is no necessary that waits solution to #2445 and #18654.

So would you be able to free dependence to #2445, and start to review the patches?
Many thanks.
