Hello all,

I've been working on porting Sage, which heavily relies on Python to say the least, to Cygwin so would be very interested in improving Python support for Cygwin.
Lately we've been having troubles with Python and ncurses, see:
As it would be better for everyone to avoid duplicating work, I'm reporting here.

As far as the import library issue is concerned, it it really a good idea to use the dylib stuff to search for import libs?
It will do the trick, but it feels like a hack as dylib and implib stuff are clearly different things.

The other big problem is that ncurses support is completely broken on cygwin.
A follow-up to #7384 should surely be open.
