Hi shura_zam,
I test this patch in issue3871 but without success - don't try
to build ctypes module. May I ask you to post a sample.

Roumen, does your patch in #3871 supercede this issue? Or is it impossible to tell without more info from the OP?

Terry, my patch in #3871  don't supersede this issue.
In patch to #3871 for mingw host  I use same work-around as for all other platforms
Lets see the code of methods configure_ctypes...(..) :
            # Add .S (preprocessed assembly) to C compiler source extensions.

a) the patch to this issue didn't works for me;
b) issue in not only for GCC compiler for cygwin&mingw targets

Distutils is now deprecated (see PEP 632) and all tagged issues are being closed. From now until removal, only release blocking issues will be considered for distutils.

If this issue does not relate to distutils, please remove the component and reopen it. If you believe it still requires a fix, most likely the issue should be re-reported at
